Apatite
Dassu, Braldu Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
2.8 x 1.8 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $750


Esthetic thumbnail pink Apatite in a sculptural arrangement. The previous owner called this "The policeman" since with imagination at several angles it looks like a human figure. No matter the anthropomorphic ideas, it is a fine complete cluster of well formed, undamaged Apatite crystals, vividly fluorescent. All are doubly terminated. The terminations all show a fine edge modification having a bevel across all faces. Absolutely one of a kind, I consider it a competition grade thumbnail.
