RM910   Fluorapatite with inclusions

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. Crystal shows good brilliance, transparence and a yellow color with green tones. With some prismatic black inclusions (epidote?). The specimen is from a Moroccan classic mine located in the Imilchil mountains area.

Size: 6.1 x 4.1 x 4.0 cm.
Main crystal: 20 x 14 mm.
