A spectacular museum quality blue-green phantom fluorite cluster 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!


Displays beautifully on its own, this is an outstanding specimen for connoisseur collectors.


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.
