Fluorite with Druzy Quartz from Yaogangxian Mine
Dimension: 5.5cm x 5.3cm x 3cm
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.
