Sapo Mine, Brazil
Did you know that hydroxylapatite is the same mineral that our bones and teeth are made of? Well, now you can own a brilliant sample for your display! The specimen features large, fine green crystals of hydroxylapatite grown along a 4.1 inch feldspar matrix. This piece comes from the legendary Sapo Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. This mine is well known as a producer of some of the most collectable apatite and tourmaline specimens that have ever come to light! Classic material from a locality beloved by collectors, matrix specimens like this are not plentiful today.
