description: LOCALITY: Ping Wu County, Sichuan Province, China 4" across This high quality specimen is from a locality made most famous by world class crystallized scheelite, cassiterite and tabular aquamarine that it has produced. Despite fluorapatite being one of the lesser known species of Ping Wu, this fine piece would be a suitable addition for any collection of fine quality worldwide apatite. The dominant crystal of this piece has smaller crystals around it. All of the crystals are gemmy with faces that are glassy lustered. Importantly, the largest crystal is near the middle of the matrix. The matrix is covered by silvery crystalline muscovite. Hence, the contrast between the matrix and the pink crystals is pleasing in terms of both color and texture.
