  APATITE

  Sterling Hill, Ogdensburg, 

  Sussex County, NJ, USA

  Large hexagonal, blue-green apatite crystals

  in marble with a black mineral that superfi-

  cially resembles franklinite but on closer

  inspection looks more like 'hornblende'.

 

 Very similar to the material from Hamburg. The apatite fluoresces a pale blue under short-wave UV (fluorapatite?).
