Fluorite on Dolomite
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan Province, China
6.8 x 5.9 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Winter 2016-17

Choice and very esthetic, old type of Fluorite in stepped, modified cubo-octahedral crystals perched on contrasting milky Dolomite. Dark purple phantoms are seen in the center of the main crystals where the glassy "windowpane" face looks into the clear interiors. From vintage 2002 finds at Shangbao, this habit has not been found for several years. In fine condition there is a small clean contact on the back corner of the smaller crystal but no damage.
