Emerald Green Fluorite from Yiwu Co.

Dimension: 7.4cm x 5cm x 3cm

Weight: 118g

Locality: Yiwu Co., Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China


This is a truly attractive and mesmerizing specimen which exhibits two generations of Fluorite!  Striking vivid emerald-green, octahedral Fluorite cluster are topped by a layer of pastel purple Fluorite, which, in turn, appear to have stepped crystal growth, epitactic on the edges and corners of the underlying octahedral crystals.  The emerald-green Fluorite crystals are gemmy and have excellent sheen.  From a small find in 2016 near Yiwu county in Zhejiang province, China, the photos hardly do them justice.  One must see the piece in person to fully appreciate the true beauty of the rich emerald color!
