Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF)- classic locale
stock #14.1-078
Nevel Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
10.9 x 7.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

A large cabinet sized matrix of quartz and mixed pegmatite that hosts a dense mass of interlocked purple Apatite crystals. From the famed Nevel Quarry in Maine that is more famed for fine Tourmalines. The sharp and glassy crystals reach over 9mm but most are about 5-6 in size. The color is a good medium purple that is lighter than from the nearby Pulsifer Quarry. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare from the Nevel and this one also has a few tiny unidentified Phosphate crystals as well. Minor bruises are seen with magnification and some cracks are noted in the matrix yet the naked eye display is excellent.
