Mongolian Phantom Fluorite, Calcite, Pyrite and Dolomite Specimen
Dimension: 4.2cm x 4cm x 3cm
Locality: Yindu Ag-Pb-Zn deposit, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia, China
A beautiful and very unique specimen from recent finds at the Yindu Mine, one of the less well-known Inner Mongolian localities located a little distance from the famous Huanggang Mine. This stunning piece combines cubic phantom fluorite crystals in blue-green color and disc of calcite crystals with pyrite aesthetically sprinkled on the petal-like calcite, so beautiful! Such an outstanding piece in good contrast with the dolomite lining in between the calcite and the fluorite. The fluorite crystals are transparent to translucent with high luster.
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.
