One of the finest examples in this size class I have seen the famed Huanggang Mine has been producing.  Acquired in 2015, the large group of Fluorite crystals is transparent to translucent with modified, stepped edges and corners.  It has a rich, fine blue-green color, impressive!  Grown alongside with a contrasting aggregate of Milky Quartz crystals, it is absolutely pristine and amazing.  Production of this species was several years ago and not a lot has come out since then, especially in this level of fine quality, this really stands out.  The massive group of Fluorite crystals displays a bright purple-blue fluorescence under UV lighting 365nm.  It is the finest blue-green Fluorites for quality, color and size.  Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.

 

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.
