This is a great combination piece of pink fluor-apatite and aquamarine. A study in pastels, the apatite has a classic thick tabular form with thinly beveled edges in a gemmy pink color. It rests with a similarly sized aquamarine crystal in light blue. I love the balance of the piece, and that it is accented with silvery muscovite mica. This is a fantastic miniature representation of the minerals of Pakistan. The aquamarine has a small contact in one area.
