Fluorite with Arsenopyrite, Pyrite and Ferberite from Yaogangxian Mine
Dimension: 3.7cm x 3cm x 3cm
Locality: Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
A very unique and beautiful Fluorite specimen from the Yaogangxian Mine. The multiple terminated, silvery-blue Fluorite crystal has grown into a sculptural, stepped crystal form. The Fluorite crystal is between transparent to translucent with excellent luster. Associated with well crystalized brassy-gold Pyrite, metallic silver Arsenopyrite and jet-black Ferberite, this truly is a piece of art!
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.
