This is an outstanding large group of lustrous, gemmy green Fluorapatite crystals from the Panasqueira Mine in Portugal. Panasqueira apatite's have been treasured for over 75 years and are considered highly desirable classics of the mineral world. They have held their own against other apatites even as major discoveries in China, Pakistan and Brazil continue to be made. This very large and impressive specimen (21 cm across with crystals to 3.5 cm) shows why this is, with exceptional color, luster and density of undamaged crystals. A major Panasqueira specimen and an apatite worthy of any collection. From the noted collection of Gerhard Wagner.
