Apatite on Muscovite
Chumar Bakhoor, Hunza Valley
Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
5.5 x 4.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $680


A prism of pink Apatite (Fluorapatite or Apatite-CaF)is nestled in a Muscovite matrix. The crystal is 2.1 CM across and has distinctive modifications of the edges of the termination. From the earlier finds of Apatite at Chumar Bakhoor, this is in excellent condition. Esthetic contrast with the matrix, the Apatite looks fine from all angles.
