Gemmy Green Fluorite on Matrix from Sanming, Fujian, China
Dimension: 9.5cm x 4.3cm x 2.9cm
Locality: Sanming Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
Beautiful gemmy green fluorite cube crystals from a new find in Fujian Province, near Sanming Prefecture. This part of China has not traditionally been known for fine minerals (with the exception of the Tongbei area spessartine/smoky quartz), but these are certainly something special, with great quality, colour, and gemminess.
A gorgeous mound of limpid-clear, lustrous, light green fluorite crystals. Simple cube forms with, often, notched corners. Very little bruising. Absolutely delightful! The totally clear green interiors of the fluorite crystals coupled with intense yellow matrix make these highly attractive!
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.
