For sale is a very nice and hard to come by pink apatite from Himalaya mine, California. Superb, unusually gemmy and intensely colored apatite for the locality, in reality this has probably more of a pink hue. A doubly terminated, sharply hexagonal apatite crystal from the famous Himalaya Mine. This pristine crystal is gemmy and glassy, and has the classic identifiable healed form near the base. These apatites are very hard to come by particularly in this size and condition! This saturated pink color is considered the most desirable color for apatite from this historic locality. Ex The Collector ( Fallbrook, Cal.), ex Paul Melville collection, with labels. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars!!
