An exceedingly lustrous and transparent Fluorite crystal with beautiful phantoms from the world-renowned Yaogangxian Mine.  Sharp, deeper purple lines predominantly shown inside the center of an aqua blue Fluorite reminding me of a jello cube, yummy!  The edges and corners exhibit detailed, fine second termination.  The Fluorite exhibits a bright blue fluorescence under UV lighting (365nm).  In excellent condition, a classic Fluorite piece from this famous locale.


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.
