Collector's Piece: Fluorite with Schorl Tourmaline Inclusions from Namibia
Dimension: 12.3cm x 7.7cm x 3.4cm
Locality: Erongo Mountains, Erongo Region, Namibia
A large and beautiful specimen of dodecahedral Fluorite crystals set on a Muscovite Mica matrix with Tourmaline var. Schorl inclusions from the Erongo Mountains in Namibia. The deep green to bright green Fluorite formed over the black Schorl Tourmaline crystals with great lustre. The Fluorite fluoresces a bright purple color under UV lighting (365 nm). The specimen was produced from one of the many gem-bearing pegmatite veins in the Erongo Mountain area in Namibia and is in excellent condition. It is for sure a great centerpiece to add to any collections!
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.
