Dennis Durgin's Photo Gallery

N51-MJYElbaite, Fluorapatite

Mount Marie Quarries, Paris, Oxford Co., Maine, USA

This specimen was found in two pieces: The "cap" is a cross section of a tri-colored watermelon tourmaline (elbaite species) coated with a color zoned coating of light to medium purple small prismatic fluorapatite crystals. The cap was separated from the base at an apparent natural fracture as the two pieces join tightly with minimal damage. This specimen was back-lighted using a daylight lighting source.
