RM1384   Fluorapatite with hornblende

Imilchil, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Group of sharp fluorapatite crystals of good size showing an elongated prism with vertical striations, and multiple terminal faces truncated by the pinacoid. Good brilliance, translucent and a very distinctive greenish yellow color. They present numerous inclusions of flattened prismatic deep black crystals, also vertically striated and opaque. SEM-EDS analyses indicate that they probably belongs to the hornblende group, most likely magnesio-ferri-hornblende. We will send analysis to the buyer. A very aesthetic and aerial shape specimen.

Size: 7.5 x 4.5 x 2.2 cm.
Main crystal: 13 x 13 mm.
Found in 2016.
