Fluorapatite, Albite

One of my older photos. I thought I had uploaded it but apparently not. It's one of the nicer apatites I've seen come out of the Skardu area. Sharp terminations all around and several growths of smaller apatites. It's lacking that gem quality that some have but I don't usually see too many of those without being small flat crystals or internally fractured. Note that the albite is non fluorescent. It is simply the reflection of the UV light and dust.
