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!
