Fluorapatite on Quartz and Cookeite
stock #A-7-219-536
Harvard Quarry, Greenwood, Oxford County
Maine, United States
7 x 3.1 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450
Pre Holiday 2017

Attractive and with an unusual esthetic, this is a densely packed matrix of lilac color Apatite. An older specimen from the classic Harvard Quarry in Maine, The druzy Quartz matrix hosts hundreds of small but perfect Apatites most being doubly terminated. In perfect condition and showing well the paragenesis of this locale, this was in the collection of the late Larry White. Two older labels give the locality as Mt Apatite (a more famous locale often incorrectly cited) but those labels are not correct, it is confirmed by Dr. Carl Francis and others as absolutely a classic Harvard piece. Choice and very rare in such fine quality.
