Aggregates of intergrowth cubic Phantom Fluorite crystals with great color and luster.  The Fluorite crystal cubes are well shaped with sharp edges and corners.  Associated with champagne gold Muscovite, the bed of micro-crystals of Arsenopyrite is almost completely covered by these two minerals.  They are very sparkly and with good light, you can see the metallic silver Arsenopyrite through the transparent Fluorite, outstanding!


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.
