Description

Elegant miniature of yellow apatite from Durango, with an excellent elongated crystal which is fully gemmy. The main crystal proudly sits on top of the matrix, beautifully contrasting with the white calcite. The crystal displays a thick, sharp, pencil shaped habitus, with an excellent termination and very good transparency and lustre.

My best Mexican apatite, from my American suite.
