5E4-5X2Fluorapatite, Calcite

Smart Mine, Miller property, Sebastopol Township, Renfrew Co., Ontario, Canada

George Thompson Collection

23cm high, crystal is 13.5cm long. Label indicates that it is from "near" the Smart Mine.

Photographed at 2011 Bancroft Gemboree. George actually bought this piece, plus about another 20 pounds of calcite, at the Gemboree the previous year. In the time between, he carefully trimmed it down to this beauty.

Large apatite crystals such as this (and even bigger) are not particularly unusual in this part of the world, but to have one like this survive removal, let alone this amount of prep is pretty damn good. George brought me a number of his Canadian apatites for me to photograph for the upcoming Lithographie apatite issue.

Multiple photos available
Sainte-Clotilde-de-Châteauguay quarry, Sainte-Clotilde-de-Châteauguay, Les Jardins-de-Napierville RCM, Montérégie, Québec, Canada

4.8cm high.

I collect Canadian minerals, mostly miniatures (partly for budgetary reasons, but also because they tend to be more photogenic - don't judge, I've got lots of ugly rare stuff too) so of course I just couldn't pass this one up - especially for $5!

When I bought it, I thought it looked like an umbrella tree, but when I had it on my photo table to take this picture, someone who was visiting me at the time said "wow, that looks like..."

See child photo.
