Specimen # 200093
Mineral: Fluorapatite
Location: Fluorapatite, Panasqueira Mines, Covillh√£, Castello Branco, Portugal
Size: 4.3 x 2.0 x 1.9 cm


A cluster of beautiful glassy fluorapatite crystals from Panasqueira. These crystals are green, with darker central zones and lighter outer zones. They are as sharp and lustrous as fluorapatite gets, with striations on the prism faces. These fluorapatite crystals exhibit great colour under ultraviolet light, really highlighting the zoning. In excellent condition – one incomplete corner of a smaller crystal around the right-hand side (and not complete around the back where this was attached). A sweet specimen!
