Locality: Youxi Co., Sanming, Fujian, China


A large cabinet gemmy green Fluorite perfectly placed atop clear, glassy points of Ametrine Quartz (Amethyst and Citrine) on this matrix specimen.  This modified cubes of Fluorite are highly lustrous and translucent, they pick up the surrounding light and glow from within.  The green colour is rich and top notch for this find.  These Fluorites were reportedly discovered in 2013 during the construction of a 13 kilometer tunnel near Youxi for the Xiangtang–Putian high-speed railway, and good quality pieces are expensive, even in China.


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.
