Collector’s Piece: Green Fluorite from Mandrosonoro, Madagascar
Dimension: 8.7cm x 6.4cm x 2.7cm
Locality: Mandrosonoro, Ambatofinandrahana, Amoron'i Mania, Madagascar
This species of Phantom Fluorite has only been found recently in a small quantity which displays beautiful color zonings, the vast majority of Green Fluorite from this locale doesn’t show this rare quality I must say. The Fluorite crystals clustered on a tan matrix showing a variety of colors – transparent, emerald-green and deep green, fascinating! They have sharp edges and corners although the phantoms are not well shown on the video. Under longwave UV lighting 365nm, the entire Fluorite “plate” displays a bright blue fluorescence, so attractive. The piece is way more pretty in person than video, the colors are so vibrant and dramatic which should best be admired with naked eyes. Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.

Fluorite's Maintenance Advice:
Fluorite is extremely susceptible to sunlight, some colors 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 and away from direct sunlight.
