||Fluorapatite on muscovite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu, Huya
5.4x4.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
A cluster of glassy purple to pink fluorapatites reaching 2.5 CM showing good transparency. Good apatites from Xuebaoding are very much sought after and were hard to get even when the mining was active. A very nice piece the tiny black spots in some photos are tiny cassiterites adhearing to the apatite. In great condition.
