Collector’s Piece: Green Fluorite and Milky Quartz from Huanggang Mine, Mongolia
Dimension: 10.4cm x 7.1cm x 4.3cm
Locality: Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia, China
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.
