Cova da Beira, Centro,
5.5 x 5.7 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
new year 2021
Sharp, glassy and transparent green Apatite crystals in a cluster that features a main 3.6 CM crystal perched on top. The Apatites are zoned, vividly fluorescent, and have just a sprinkle of matrix; this is mostly just Apatite. In very good condition, with just tiny edge bruises seen on close exam which keeps the price low for such good form and luster. Nice display quality Apatite from this iconic mine.
