Collector’s Piece: Fluorite on Quartz from Xiayang Mine, Fujian, China
Dimension: 8.2cm x 4.5cm x 3.8cm
Locality: Xiayang Mine, Yongchun Co., Quanzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
This is a gem quality Fluorite specimen with purple Fluorite on a sparkling matrix covered with tiny Quartz crystals. From a limited find of spring 2016, the dodecahedral Fluorite crystals exhibit wisps of phantoms where you can observe from the “windows”. Natural triangular shaped cleavage marks are presented on the matt surfaces and on the rims, adding extra aesthetics to the piece. The contrast in light is striking and the glittering Quartz crystals on a black matrix display amazingly 3-dimentional effect in color and form. Several smaller Fluorite crystals aesthetically scattered on the matrix, one of which is so transparent that it displays the penetration of the matrix, mesmerizing! This is a perfect piece without any damages, it is as much a “jewel” as you can want, and a very showy centerpiece of this pocket. Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
