Mongolian Phantom Fluorite, Cassiterite and Quartz Crystals on Matrix
Dimension: 12.8cm x 6.8cm x 2.7cm
Locality: Weilasituo Ag-polymetallic deposit, Chifeng Prefecture, Inner Mongolia, China
An absolute stunner and a good cabinet sized example of fluorite, cassiterite and quartz crystals from this interesting new find in Inner Mongolia. It features clusters of cassiterite crystals and quartz points sitting on a matrix. This was one of the most striking combination pieces that I saw from this find.
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.
