Phantom Fluorite on Quartz from Yiwu Mine, Zhejiang, China
Dimension: 9.2cm x 4.9cm x 3cm
Locality: Yiwu Co., Jinhua Prefecture, Zhejiang Province, China
Two beautiful Octohedral Stepped Fluorite on Druzy Quartz Matrix from Yiwu Co., Jinhua Prefecture, Zhejiang Province, China. The phantoms are green zoned core and purple outer layer, aesthetic to look at from all angles. This came out of a small pocket one-time find discovered nearby the Yiwu old mine in early 2019. The Yiwu mine had been in operation since the early 1990s and was shut down a few years ago. I am lucky enough to acquire some of the best pieces from this small pocket.
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.
