Fluorite on Quartz
Availability: 1 in stock
This is an incredibly bright piece with superior luster and color with small complex crystals forming spherical aggregates. the exposed quartz is also fluorite coated with very interesting terminations. The color, with illumination, is an intense lime green. According to Graham Sutton, who was in the mine, this piece was likely sold by Collectors Edge as the iron oxide coating had to be removed and they were able to do so without losing the luster. Highly recommended. Ex Martin Zinn collection.
Locality: Xingyang Mine, Henan Province, China
