A highly lustrous and transparent specimen of yellowish-green fluorapatite cyrstals with muscovite. This is a truly exceptional example with incredible crystal coverage. The fluorapatite crystals are connected and intergrown forming the overall structure of the specimen. Tiny muscovite fill in some of the voids between the fluorapatite crystals. The photos really don't show just how shiny this specimen is; the fluorapatite crystals are like mirrors! The overall condition is excellent with only a few crystals with any dings, but most are pristine. The fluorapatite is highly fluorescent, and glows a white-yellow color under longwave UV.

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
