Frankolite (Richtersveld, South Africa)
Wondergat deposit, Anniesfontein, Richtersveld, South Africa. 40mm x 35mm x 20mm.
Frankolite is a carbonate rich variety of Fluorapatite, the deposit at Wondergat is no longer accesable with these specimens becoming few and far between. There is no real difference between the specimen in daylight or the UV lights but generally speaking any specimen that was not going to flouresce would not have shown up at all. AS we are learning we thought it appropriate to pop it under the UV section as well just incase. Estimated shipping weight including packaging etc +/- 100gr.
