Description:A striking and sculptural large combination plate from the Panasqueira Mine. Four water-clear quartz points, dominated by the impressive 5.5 cm center crystal, dramatically rise up from the smaller quartz point with underlying aresenopyrite matrix plate. Glassy hexagonal tan apatite crystals festooned with tiny calcite rhombs coat nearly all of this most imposing large combination from the Art Soregaroli Collection. The apatites do not fluoresce. A exceptional, rich and uncommon quality 360-degree combination.
