Large Sphene crystal with green apatite in calcite
Dimensions (millimeters): 70 x 45 x 40
Dimensions (inches): 2.75 x 1.8 x 1.6
Origins: Yates Mine, Quebec, Canada
I dug this at Yates Mine, Quebec, Canada
This mine is now closed and reclaimed - completely covered over
The road to the mine is a muddy mire interrupted by large boulders, the bugs will carry you away but it was worth it to get some samples. The pit is now covered over and reclaimed and has been released to a mining company for rare earth mineral exploration. Yates Mine has a long history of being leased out for rare earths and other minerals but has never been productive except for mineral specimens.
All Mineral Specimens come with a label with the name of the mineral and where it was mined
