Fluorapatite with Quartz, Chlorite and Calcite
Fluorapatite with Quartz, Chlorite and Calcite.
 

NE46AL5: A novelty at the Sainte Marie 2020 Virtual show: Group of elongated pale yellow to violet Fluorapatite crystals with zoning that forms white geometric bands in the terminal areas, on a Quartz crystal, partially covered by Chlorite and small crystals of Calcite. The specimen, completely different from those known so far from Panasqueira, comes from a small vug that produced few pieces.

Specimen size: 5.2 × 2.6 × 1.5 cm = 2.05” × 1.02” × 0.59”

Main crystal size: 3.6 × 0.7 cm = 1.42” × 0.28”

NJ36AL5: A novelty at the Sainte Marie 2020 Virtual show: Group of elongated pale yellow to violet Fluorapatite crystals with zoning that forms white geometric bands in the terminal areas, on matrix, with Sphalerite, Quartz crystals, leafy aggregates of Muscovite and small coatings of Chlorite. The specimen, completely different from those known so far from Panasqueira, comes from a small vug that produced few pieces.
