Fluorapatite

One of the more common well-crystallized minerals at the Bear Lake Diggings is fluorapatite, or apatite as we call it. It is pretty hard to visit the Diggings and not come away without at least ONE crystal. This one is interesting in that the termination is hollow and a second crystals grew or got stuck in the hollow! The bigger crystal is 4.5cm across. For information only. Not for sale.
