RM429   Fluorapatite doubly terminated with quartz

Feli mine, La Fregeneda, Salamanca, Castilla y León, Spain

Group of bluish fluorapatite crystals, showing well defined faces and edges. Some of them show defined prism and even hexagonal pyramid faces. Although the site is known, it is not easy to find samples on matrix with a good size and luster ... and on matrix, because it is very easy, when you work them, that crystals fall out. They are transparent to translucent with nice color zoning, more intense in the center of the prism. They are usually accompanied by quartz. In this sample we have a very nice crystal doubly terminated very aerial disposed on the quartz.

Size: 5,3 x 4,3 x 4,0 cm.
Main crystal: 6 x 2 mm.
