A CLASSIC Panasqueira specimen. Very glassy, gemmy and lustrous, color-zoned, gray-green apatite crystals cover the sculptural and aesthetic plate. The sharp, tabular crystals have textbook, hexagonal form and reach 2.0 cm and the fringe of the piece is nicely accented with tiny siderite crystals. This is CHOICE material from the Dr. Gary Hansen Collection and dates to the 1970s or early 80s. Valued at $750-1000. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
