Apatite is a mineral that should be a part of every collection. This fine example of blue apatite crystals on matrix hails from the Golconda Mine in Brazil. The apatite cluster is defined and sharp, showcasing textbook quality hexagonal shape, with a smooth, deep blue color. The crystals contrast nicely with the massive orthoclase feldspar matrix, and some quartz is also present to give you an active glimpse of the pegmatite environment where it formed. Blue apatite only comes from a handful of localities in the world, and fine crystals are often cut or made into jewelry. Here is a chance to own a fine blue apatite crystal cluster in its natural form.
The Sapo Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil is internationally recognized as a producer of fine mineral specimens that are warmly received by collectors of all ages. It is most known for its well formed crystals of apatite and tourmaline.
