Here is a spectacular specimen representing fluorapatite! This is a single crystal with stepped growth, showing prominent pinacoidal termination on a hexagonal prism and modified by first and second order pyramids. The faces are lustrous with an crystal interior that is mostly gemmy with cloudiness near the center of the crystal. The are some inclusions of a needle-like mineral near the bottom, probably byssolite or some thing similar and a little chlorite attached to the base. Excellent! RTD
