Beautiful slightly pink apatite crystal attached to quartz and surrounded by spessartine and one small apatite crystal. the feldspar itself seems to be partly skeleton like, furthermore you can see Cleavelandite and phlogopite and one small but perfect cubic tantalite crystal!! Interesting paragenesis from the Shigar-Valley.
