Item Description

Striking, pretty multi-hued purple, lustrous, gemmy to translucent, hexagonal fluorapatite crystals with rounded terminations are dramatically studded on the sculptural, 360-degree small cabinet combination matrix from this impressive RARE, OLD piece from Dayu County, Jiangxi Province, China. The beautiful apatites reach 1.1 cm and some are doubly terminated. The sculptural matrix consists of a partially doubly terminated, frosted translucent quartz crystal with the apatite crystals embedded on a blanket of tiny light yellow Lepidolite crystals and larger tabular crystal clusters. The bruising on both ends of the piece is mostly out-of-sight on this exotic and colorful rarity. Ex Kurt Hefendehl Collection. Rare, perhaps unique OLD and aesthetic combination material from the1980s or 1990s.
