Pegmatites are the geological environments responsible for the bulk of the world's crystalline mineral treasures. Not every day do you get to see a gem mineral in its natural form, on the natural host rock... but here we have a fine specimen of fluorapatite crystals on orthoclase matrix from the Sapo Mine in Brazil. This locality is world famous for its crystals of apatite and tourmaline, and a good specimen is essential for any collector of Brazilian minerals! From a classic find, these apatite crystals are super well developed and textbook examples for crystals of this mineral. The matrix is orthoclase feldspar, feldspar being one of the common constituents of the pegmatite body. A collector's choice to exemplify the mineralogical splendors of Brazil.
