Inky Blue Fluorite on Matrix from Inner Mongolia
Dimension: 6.5cm x 5.5cm x 2.4cm
Locality: Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China
This specimen features inky blue Fluorite crystals perched over a white matrix. The fluorite crystals themselves have interesting morphology. The floating crystals on the back side are octahedral, with fascinating growth hillocks giving a bit of complexity, while the crystals on the front exhibit complex intergrowth. Some translucent green Fluorite crystals are growing around a corner of the piece, facinating!
