Nice and interesting apatite, I must confess I never heard of that locality. The apatite reminds me of those from Cerro de Mercado in Mexico or those from Imilchil in Morocco. Cool!

Thanks Tobi. I believe that they first came to market in 1999. So specimens have been available for quite some time. These pieces are from a recent revisit to the diggings.

What a bizarre looking rhodochrosite! Is that from a new find or is this an old piece?

Jamison - I don't know if this is from a new find or not.

Thanks Pierre, it was the shape of the crystals that peaked my interest.
