Large flat piece of ironstone with front face loaded with crystals. Blue Lazulite, tan Siderite, and white Apatite. Many pieces only have the Lazulite and Siderite which can leave them darker in appearance. The numerous white Apatites lighten up this specimen, along with the well dispersed, isolated Lazulites. This is easily the best of a large lot of these I obtained over 15 years ago and I'm posting it now for the first time ever.

Gem quality golden brown crystal complete all around. In excellent condition for this locality, with only some minor edge chipping. Fully transparent internally, so much so you see right through it and some of what looks like inclusions in the photos are really just shadows from some irregular surface areas on the lower backside of the crystal.
