Don, Am, Enrique, Tobi, and Michael:

I express my sincere gratitude for the time you have dedicated to writing these very kind posts.

Thank you!

Dany, many thanks for your comments. You are very fortunate to live in Valais/Wallis. I know that canton, especially Zermatt.

PostPosted: Apr 09, 2024 05:01    Post subject: Collection of Carles Millan - Fluorapatite from Kami Mine  

Fluorapatite Ca5(PO4)3F, siderite FeCO3, quartz SiO2

Fluorapatite crystals of hexagonal shape are disposed on a matrix of hyaline quartz crystals and accompanied by siderite. The fluorapatite crystals are translucent to transparent with a very uniform, nice pink color and very well-defined hexagonal faces, truncated by the pinacoids and faces of the dipyramid. The color of these crystals varies a little depending on the type of light; it is a bit pale in daylight and more saturated under incandescent lighting. It is accompanied by well-defined rhomboedral siderite crystals with a very aesthetic green-brown color, arranged very aerially on the specimen. A specimen from a recent find in the Kami mine; it is in excellent condition.

Dimensions: 74 mm x 52 mm.
Mass: 87 g.

Locality: Kami Mine, Ayopaya Province, Cochabamba Department, Bolivia.
