Phenakite, etc., Snezhnoye Deposit, Siberia, Russia

I don't profess to know anything about this deposit but I managed to acquire these specimens from a friendly Russian. They consist of phenakite crystals embedded in a matrix of deep purple fluorite and blue apatite, usually with a little rock included. Interesting, attractive association!
