A very cute and uncommon Brazilian miniature of a 2.0 cm, gemmy and lustrous, purplish-blue, apatite crystal jauntily angled on the front of a sculptural cluster of lustrous, snow-white albite crystals. This excellent combo piece is from Nova Lima. Apatites of this color and quality from Nova Lima are rare and highly desirable. ex Michel Jactat collection
