A rare specimen from the Yaogangxian Mine of metallic-silver Boulangerite needles included in transparent, glassy, pale blue Rainbow Fluorite cubes.  The Boulangerite needles are densely grown within the Fluorite cubes together with tiny crystals of Epidote, that they appear to be greyish-green.  Micro-crystals of deep olive-green Epidote intergrown with the Fluorite and champagne-gold Muscovite, it is aesthetics, rare and unique!


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.
