AJ27Y6: Aggregate of Fluorapatite crystals on Quartz and with a group of Siderite crystals. The crystals of Fluorapatite, between short prismatic and thick tabular, are very bright and transparent and show a very well-marked geometrical color zoning, blue in the central area and almost colorless on the terminations. The sample has been photographed for a long article in Mineral Up magazine devoted to the mineralogy of Portugal, although we cannot assure that the image will be definitely published.
