Inky Blue Fluorite on Milky Quartz from Huanggang Mine, Inner Mongolia

Dimension: 4.9cm x 3.9cm x 3.9cm

Weight: 64g

Locality: Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China

 

Inky blue Fluorite crystals aesthetically perched on a Milky Quartz crystal matrix, very three dimensional and showy.  The Fluorite crystals exhibit interesting and complex intergrown morphology – they are cubic with dodecahedral modifications showing an unusual curvature to the crystal edges and faces.  The surfaces of the Fluorite crystals display a velvety luster. 

 

Specimens of this kind were once a ‘wow’ factor in the Tucson show 2015.  The exposed surface on the underside of the Quartz exhibits a two stages of growth - a transparent inner core center followed by a second stage of milky Quartz coating.  A beautiful find with striking color contrast as against the pure white Milky Quartz, exquisite and outstanding!
