Nyet-Bruk, Braldu Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas), Pakistan
A very cute thumbnail of apatite is clear to just a trace of baby pink color. The main crystal is complete and intersected by a second crystal to look almost like a pinwheel on a stalk. The top crystal is complete and transparent with inclusions that cause rainbow interference patterns with strong light. The intersecting crystal is complete on the front face and broken on the back. This piece is strongly yellow fluorescent in both LW and SW UV light.
