RM1383   Fluorapatite with hornblende

Imilchil, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Group of sharp fluorapatite crystals of good size showing parallel growth, 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.

RM687   Fluorapatite

Imilchil, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

We have seen many gemmy fluorapatite crystals from Imilchil, with the classic prism and more or less developed dipyramid. In this specimen we have a fantastic complexity of facets for this Moroccan locality. There is an exquisite combination of dipyramids of first and second order, highly developed, and some prism faces. It reminds Alpine fluorapatite. With honey tones and on a matrix with small magnetite crystals. A very interesting rarity. Not more available...
