This is a nice green apatite crystal with partial terminations at both ends. It is nicely perched on a chunk of orange calcite with multiple veins of purple fluorite. This is a colorful specimen. The apatite is transparent but has so many internal fractures (all parallel) that it looks translucent but with bright sparkles where the internal fractures catch the light. It has undoubtedly been removed from the matrix, cleaned, coated with something to improve its luster, and glued back into its original spot in the calcite.
