This piece combines beautiful blue fluorite with clear purple phantoms and tiny little quartz points on a matrix. The larger fluorite is measuring 2.8cm x 2.1cm. Unusual and beautiful. A beautiful specimen from recent finds at the Yindu Mine, one of the less well-known Inner Mongolian localities located a little distance from the more prolific Huanggang Mine.
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.
