Phantom Fluorite, Quartz Points and Chlorite on Matrix from Inner Mongolia
Dimension: 5.3cm x 5.1cm x 2.2cm
Locality: Weilasituo Ag-polymetallic deposit, Chifeng Prefecture, Inner Mongolia, China
An absolute stunner and a good small cabinet sized example of Phantom Fluorite, Quartz Points and Chlorite on Matrix from this interesting new find in Inner Mongolia. It features beautiful blue cubic Fluorite cyrstals with deep purple phantoms, associated with clear quartz points sitting on a matrix. Micro crystals of olive-green Chlorite delicately dusted the matrix and partially coated some Quartz points, this is 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.
