Rare Bi-color Fluorite from Huanggang Mine, Inner Mongolia
Dimension: 5cm x 2.8cm x 2.6cm
Locality: Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China
An extremely rare pink and blackish-purple Fluorite specimen from the Huanggang Mine of Inner Mongolia. I had seen specimens of this kind when I was little but then never had the chance to see it again for a long long time. I purchased this piece from a good miner friend in June 2019, I did ask for more but this is the only piece I could get so far. I love the contrasting color of mauve pink and deep purple, the deep purple color is visually black. The intergrown aggregate of cubic Fluorite crystals are lustrous and translucent. A rare and beautiful piece for connoisseur collectors!
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.
