Fluorite with Druzy Quartz from Yaogangxian Mine

Dimension: 5.5cm x 5.3cm x 3cm

Weight: 59g

Locality: Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China


An interesting piece from the Yaogangxian Mine features cubic Fluorite grown on a matrix of druzy Quartz, in a shape resembling a "hood".  The druzy Quartz aesthetically outlined and "crowned" the Fluorite in places, creating a sugar-coated effect.  Beautiful coloration and a unique piece.


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.
