Apatite (Fluorapatite)on Muscovite with Calcite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8.8 x 5.7 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Worldwide mix summer

A superb example of the gem clear pink Apatites from the Xuebaoding mountain find of 2004. These Apatites are clustered in a chain nestled in a well crystalized vug of Muscovite. The edges of the specimen are also decorated with clusters of small clear Calcite crystals which are quite uncommon in this locale. We have handled several of these Apatites and this is one of the very best, the color and clarity are especially fine. Overall a very esthetic presentation, damage free and these Apatites are also vividly fluorescent.
