Gigantic Feldspar Crystal, w/ Quartz and one lonely Apatite Crystal - Pakistan

This is a giant feldspar crystal (a single crystal) with attached quartz, uranyl activated. The unusual blue fluorescence (SW) is suspected of being uranium activated and is quite bright. The reverse side has a small apatite crystal (lost in the giant feldspar) and a smallish quartz crystal. Over 8 lbs - a huge crystal!
