The Sapo mine, known mainly for it's vibrant multi-color tourmalines, produced a limited number of incredible, logic-defying apatite specimens from a large pocket discovered around 2007. These specimens are characterized by amazing "stalactites" of lustrous green apatite crystals which has grown in elongated parallel-growth chains of crystals. This is an exceptional specimen for the find, with fantastic aesthetics and large size, measuring almost 16 cm high. These apatites are sure to be remembered for their unique form and stunning aesthetics. Riley Owen photo.
