Near Wilberforce Ontario Canada. I took several days to find all of these as they are the result of Calcite erosion. These Apatites were once locked in Calcite but through natural weathering they had worked themselves free and were buried several feet below the surface. After careful sifting and cleaning there are many colours, grades, and sizes.

Some is facetable gem quality that we may offer for sale in the coming months.

The majority is specimen and cabochon quality, and some others are heavily frost fractured.
