Anapaite - type locality
Zheleznyl Rog, Anapa, Taman Peninsula
6.6 x 4.9 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
A good color Anapaite from the type location. This unusual Hydrated Phosphate mineral is sometimes found in association with fossil clams. This specimen has a few Clam fossil segments on the matrix but is mostly about the sheaves of sharp crystals in tight clusters. There is some bruising seen with magnification as is typical but many crystals are quite distinct, perfect and show very good green color. An affordable, moderately rare and attractive specimen.
