This specimen is dominated by a translucent, 2.1 cm green fluorapatite crystal. This main fluorapatite crystal, as well as the other, smaller fluorapatites present, all have good terminations and yellow-green fluorescence under shortwave UV. Arsenopyrite is also abundant, as a few bright and complete crystals, but mostly in massive form. Muscovite rosettes complete this classic Panasqueira Mines ensemble. The display face is in very nice condition, but the usual edge issues are present. Sits perfectly for display without needing a stand.
