This NFT is a giant Apatite crystal from Lake Baikal in Russia. The Apatite crystals from this region are known for their amazing quality, with an intense color of green/blue, as beautiful as only nature can make it.

The crystal is on display in my private collection. My father drove to Russia on several occasions about 20 years ago, and this one was one of the masterpieces he bought.

Lake Baikal does not only have beautiful Apatite crystals, there is also beautiful nature. If you want to buy physical Apatite crystals from this region, or just want to see pictures of the amazing nature I can recommend this Instagram account. This woman and her father have built a museum to display the magnificent Apatites from this region:
