Gem Phantom Fluorite on Matrix from Xia Yang Mine
Dimension: 9.4cm x 5.5cm x 4.6cm
Locality: Xiayang Mine, Yongchun Co., Quanzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
A spectacular museum quality blue-green Phantom Fluorite specimen on matrix from Xiayang Mine, Quanzhou, Fujian, China. The Fluorite features predominating rhombohedral crystal habit with cubic faces, resembling the form of a garnet. It is extremely gemmy with glass-clear “windows” where you can see whisps of blue-purple / greenish-blue phantoms inside! This came out from a one-time small pocket in 2018, they were quickly sold out and have disappeared in the mineral market for over 2 years now. I must say this is an exceptional Fluorite by any standard that displays prominently, a winning museum quality display piece for connoisseur collectors!
A high quality display stand made of pure copper and acrylic is included in the price.
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.
