RM529   Fluorapatite

Imilchil, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

A really interesting gemmy fluorapatite crystal. We can observe perfectly the combination of the first and second order prisms; very sharp terminal faces, with first order hexagonal dipyramid, truncated by the pinacoid. A specimen to enjoy crystallography.
Crystal shows good brilliance, transparence and a yellow color with green tones. These specimens with this quality are not common on the market, the small ones are used for gem cutting. The specimen is from a Moroccan classic mine located in the Imilchil mountains area.

Size: 2,8 x 2,0 x 1,7 cm.
Found in 03/2012.
