An incomplete microcline crystal hosts a doubly terminated, 9 mm fluorapatite crystal (along with numerous other adjacent, smaller fluorapatites). The fluorapatite has a light lavender core, a colorless outer zone, and shows orange-yellow fluorescence under longwave UV (last picture). Other than the incomplete matrix crystal, no damage is seen. Needs a stand for optimal display angle.
