Yukon Phosphates, Brazilianite, Apatite, etc.

Brazilianite is one of the less common minerals that occu in the Yukon phosphate locality. Here are some nice specimens associated with lazulite and siderite. Note that these are not lazulite specimens. The lazulite is highly corroded on these and I suspect that the lazulite crystals provided the chemical components for the crystallization of the very sharp, excellent brazilianite crystals.
