Fluorite with Quartz and Dolomite
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan Province, China
4.6 x 3.2 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $640
Pre Holiday 2017

A fine and esthetic cluster of zoned Fluorite cubes in a delicate array. Minimal matrix, the cubes are very well separated and freely formed. Some faces show a light frosting others are more transparent and inside the cubes are swirls of deep purple with many inclusions of micro quartz prisms. With good magnification small movable bubbles are noted and the interior landscape is impressive too. Overall in outstanding condition damage wise, the corners and edges show some stepped growth but no damage. Several angles for display work well and have a quite treelike form. From mining in 2006 this style of specimen is no longer produced.
