Fluorapatite on Tremolite    Hall Farm, Gouverneur, St. Lawrence, County, New York.  Collected by Michael Walter, May 12-13, 2022.  This specimen was found along with approximately 30 others in a thin vein from a once lost locality mentioned in a mid-1980s USGS paper by Brown.  At that time only tremolite was mentioned being known at the locality, so the fluorapatite is a new species associated with the rediscovery of the locality.  The piece is 3.6 x 3.3 x 3.2 cm in overall size with a single doubly-terminated fluorapatite measuring 1.4 x .9 x .6 cm.  The translucent fluorapatites are both singly and doubly-terminated with only one having damage.  This piece is damage-free.  An unusual fine and a rather nice example of fluorapatite for St. Lawrence County.  $175
