An extinct species from the Manaoshan Mine of China where world-class green Fluorite with Dolomite combo specimens are excavated.  Beautiful gold-colored Chalcopyrite sprinkled on the creamy white Calcite in places, the Calcite disks have a milky center and a translucent outer layer.  The Calcite fluoresces an orange color under UV lighting (365 nm).  Fluorite intergrown is observed on the underside of the piece, in a light blue color.  Aesthetically arranged and very sought after by minerals collectors, this truly is a natural wonder created by the mother nature.   Last piece left!

 

Price inclusive of a high quality display stand made of pure copper and acrylic as pictured.
