Fluorapophyllite with Hubeite
stock #6.2-908
Fengjiashan Wollastonite Mine, Daye
Hubei, China
6.2 x 5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $175


From the type locality for Hubeite, this is an esthetic and unusually pristine apophyllite. Clear crystals to over 2 CM cover the matrix and these are sprinkled with rosettes and clusters of reddish brown Hubeite and some micro calcites. Most of these have lots of serious damage, this one is far better than usual but not perfect. The most important crystals are very clean with only minor edge rubbing seen at 10X magnification, there is some visible damage at the outside edges. This displays well and makes a good addition to a suite of Chinese minerals, rarities or new minerals. There has not been new Hubeite on the mineral market recently.
