Apatite-(Caf), A superb well-formed, intensely purple apatite crystal with double termination from the Mawi Pegmatite of Afghanistan.
This is one of the finest purple apatites that I have seen from this well-known locale with great tiny crystals of stilbite grown at the other end of the termination to make this specimen very different and unique from the regular crystals.
This beautiful perfect thumbnail crystal has excellent luster and clarity. The apatite crystal itself is complete all-around and is pristine.
The nicely complimentary stilbite cluster grown so beautifully makes one of the best combo pieces with such intense purple color, perfection, and clarity by far it’s one of the finest and perfect thumbnails we have seen for a long time a jewel to add in any thumbnail collection!
