Item number: 14864

The left side of this specimen is a kind of mixture of light coloured hydroxylapatite with veinlets of fibrous collinsite. The lighter coloured hydroxylapatite has many vugs lined with excellent microcrystals of hydroxylapatite in it. I've tried to photograph one but the contrast is weak. They really are very nice!
