__________
Additional information:

I changed the name of the topic from "Favourite Fluorapatite localities" to "Favourite Fluorapatites". So everyone can feel free not only to discuss his/her favourite localities but also which colours and forms of that mineral he/she likes the most, e.g. elongated or thick crystals, gemmy or not, pink or purple or green or whatever colour etc. ...

A very aesthetic specimen with a rather complex hexagonal crystal habitus, indeed a great one :-)
