Sapo Mine, Brazil
2.5 pound behemoth display specimen of blue-green apatite crystals on books of platy muscovite mica. At this point, apatite crystals from the Sapo (“Frog”) mine are just as well known as the tourmalines. The best are a beautiful blue-green color, as seen on this museum sized specimen. The crystals are well formed, damage-free and have excellent luster. Quite a gorgeous and naturalistic view of the famous Minas Gerais pegmatite. An heirloom quality reference piece.
