Apatite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/mk681a.jpg] Apatite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/mk681b.jpg] Apatite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/mk681c.jpg]

Single blue Apatite crystal of exceptional size and quality from the Merelani Tanzanite mines. This is a complete, gem quality crystal with a steep, multi-faceted termination. There are a couple edge chips, but it is in overall excellent condition and one of the better I've seen from the locality. This is likely from the Karo Mine where the best Apatite were found years ago. This is an excellent crystal and the pictures don't do it justice.

Single Peridot crystal with bright green color, good clarity, and sharp, smooth crystal faces. So many Peridot crystals tend towards an olive green color and rounded rather that crisp edges. This crystal is far better than most with good color and smooth, flat crystal faces. Complete all around and undamaged. There are also included acicular crystals of Ludwigite on the back side. A Peridot of rare quality which I have owned for 20 years or more.
