Gemmy Mint Green Stepped Fluorite and Clear Quartz Crystals Specimen
Dimension: 7cm x 5cm x 3cm
Locality: Youxi Co., Sanming Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
This is a translucent to transparent mint green fluorite on quartz from Fujian Province, China. Several green fluorite cubes contrast nicely against tiny whitish clear quartz crystals. It picks up the surrounding light and glows from within. The specimen can be set several different ways on a flat surface to make for a lovely display.
These Fluorites were reportedly recovered in 2013 during construction of a 13 km tunnel near Youxi for the Xiangtang–Putian high-speed railway, and good quality pieces are expensive, even in China.
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.
