A cluster of top quality gemmy Fluorite from Xiayang Mine famous for its world-class “Tanzanite” Fluorite. This specimen features groups of transparent to translucent Fluorite with dodecahedral crystal habit showcasing wisps of phantoms inside, they remind me of the Fluorite on Calcite from Shangbao Mine in Hunan Province which display amazingly intricate effects of oriented growth patterning in color and in form. It is so mesmerizing in complexity and qualities!
