A significant Fluorite specimen that features a rare pink hue center from the world-renowned Yaogangxian Mine.  This is by far the biggest single terminated cubic Fluorite I have ever seen from this locale.  It exhibits beautiful whisps of deep purple phantoms and stepped terminations on the corners.  The lustre is exceedingly high with great transparency - simply magnificent!


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.
