Hi all,

A friend of mine sent me this address for an Aussie internet auction and I came across this;

http://www.gemrockauctions.com/auctions/apatite/item-5767

It's a nice specimen but the description has left me a bit confused. :)

Anyway the site seems worth checking out...have fun

Frank

I would guess he is confused by the last word in the description:

BEAUTIFUL NATURAL APATITE CYSTAL OPAL. <---- OPAL?

Me too!

yes it grabbed me as a fine microscope specimen too but the opal word (as theimage1 said) seemed a bit silly to me.

Some nice stones on the site though without the overpowering thousands that appear on e-bay
