Dimension: 13cm x 11cm x 5.5cm
Locality: Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China
A stunning specimen of glassy, lavender purple and light blue fluorite crystals with quartz and muscovites crystals on matrix. This truly is a classic combination from the famous Yangangxian mine, being totally gemmy with rare stepped edges and beautiful phantoms. The fluorite crystals rest on a matrix plate covered with quartz crystals and muscovites. A first-class cabinet specimen with great aesthetics, mesmerizing in the details, in person!
Due to the depletion of resource and environmental protection regulations, most part of the Yaogangxina Mine is already ceased operation or significantly dropped production. Nice materials from this mine become very rare.
Fluorite's Maintenance Advice:
Fluorite is extremely susceptible to sunlight, some colours fade slower than others, but they all fade under sunlight. The effect also happens under normal halogen light. Therefore keep Fluorite in a darker part of the home, away from direct sunlight unless it needs to be cleansed and charged. To cleanse and charge Fluorite, just pop it on a windowsill out of direct sunlight or even on a cloudy day for 10 minutes. If it doesn't feel like that is enough, you can use reiki or sound too.
