Massif Inagli http://www.mindat.org/loc-2818.html was the type locality of Strontium-apatite (Sr,Ca)5(PO4)3(F,OH) which was transformed into Apatite-(SrOH) and then redetermined as Fluorstrophite SrCaSr3(PO4)3F.
But in the same pegmatites we can find and other Sr-rich apatite group members.
This specimen has composition Ca4Sr[PO4]3F and may to turn out Fluorcaphite SrCaCa3[PO4]3F. But for exact identification special XRD investigation is necessary. So I propose it as STRONTIAN FLUORAPATITE only. :-)
In any case you quite able to become owner of this analyzed prismatic crystal 2.5x2 mm size from this famous locality.
