This truly should be showing in the museum only! Yaogangxian Mine does not and cannot produce Fluorite specimen of this size and quality ever again as it is so depleted! This has been kept by my father for decades and it belongs to one of the very first batches of Fluorite specimen extracted from this famous Yaogangxian Mine. Mesmerizing specimen featuring groups of vivid purple Fluorite with cubic crystal habit and are well shaped with sharp edges and high luster. The rims are nicely outlined by intense purple color phantom. The deep olive-green Epidote are aesthetically sprinkled on the crystals, giving good contrast and colours! In supreme condition and nothing like this that I can think of, definitely an outstanding centerpiece to add to any collection!
