Large and uncommon Panasqueira Apatite. It comprises a flattened crystal of Fluorapatite covered by Calcite crystals on the backside. It shows different hues of green color as well as sections with nice pink color. The luster is really very high, the Apatite crystal glows by itself a lot. Much better in person. It is in excellent condition, no damage. A great choice for any demanding mineral collector. Specimen size: 9 cm x 8.5 cm. Watch the video below.
