Item Description

Sharp, lustrous, translucent, rich pink color hexagonal crystals of Fluorapatite with minor associated white Albite, free of matrix from the La Marina Mine in Colombia. I love the richness of the color in the crystals, especially for the smaller size. Apatite is not a mineral that is commonly associated with many localities in South America, but the pieces from Colombia are some of the most beautiful examples you'll see from anywhere. From the collection of Shields Flynn.
