Fairfieldite with Fluorapatite

Fairfieldite from the Foote takes many forms, and one could aspire to have a collection of just Fairfieldite. The texture can be opaque, and chalky or supremely lustrous, clear, yellow or pink. This piece has a superb cluster of sharp, glassy crystals smothering a single purple fluorapatite.
