Item Description

Several dozen, green-blue crystals of Fluorapatite almost completely cover the top surface of a rather large Muscovite crystal. The vibrantly colored Fluorapatites are crudely crystalized and display good luster and are roughly 1 cm in size and rather tightly aggregated over the surface of the Muscovite. The reverse side of the piece shows the captivating orange-bronze color of the Muscovite that contrasts well with the Fluorapatite. HIGHLY unusual as both an association and locality speciment as well.
