This is a very nice group of lustrous, color-zoned, 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 is a very nice classic Panasqueira specimen with classic green color and gemmy crystals. The aesthetic composition of the piece is excellent as is the quality of the crystals themselves. Ex.
