The Nagar area of Pakistan's Hunza Valley has produced what are probably the world's finest pink apatite crystals, typically on an attractive bed of bladed muscovite crystals. This is an outstanding large example, with lustrous, saturated pink apatite crystals to over 3 cm with glassy, bright faces and great placement on the muscovite matrix. There is a pale aquamarine beryl crystal associated with the apatite and muscovite as well. These are becoming scarcer on the market and this is a great aesthetic example!
