Beautiful and rare plate of sharp violet octahedral fluorite crystals with lustrous, gemmy light green dodecahedral fluorite overgrowths from Yongchun, Fujian Province, China.  A fantastic large "museum size" specimen from this notable new Chinese fluorite find that is likely to be remembered for its unusual morphological combination and striking colours.

 

I bought a few pieces from my recent trip to China, and there were not many pieces like this as most were that duller gray-green.

 

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.
