Locality
Mapimi dist., Durango, Mexico

Here's a rare form and habit of apatite from Mapimi. It is probably from the Asterillo mine, which is referenced in the Mexico special Issue II, Sept-Oct 2003, V34 n5. 

It is botyroidal light green very similar to carbonate apatite from the Tip Top mine in South Dakota.
