Fluorapatite (pink) with Albite
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyacá, Colombia
1.8 x 1.4 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
Fall 2015

The Colombian pink Apatites from La Marina are very desirable but very hard to get in any quality. There have been no new finds for the past few years, and the La Marina Mine is currently idle. This is an older piece from the 2003-4 era, and has good color. Some of the later Apatites were found to fade and became colorless, but this is the older color-stable type. Minor edge wear is noted mostly on the backside, but overall in very good shape for one of these.
