Fluorite -Spherical form
Caolou Mine, Huoqui Co. Luan Prefecture
8 x 7.8 x 6.8 CM (cabinet)
A big purple ball on matrix from finds at Anhui Province in the 2004-5 era. Ex Shields Flynn collection obtained from Bert Ottens at that time. Some translucency is seen with strong backlighting, the ball is 5 CM diameter has a soft matte luster. Some mottling is on the surface adds a little texture. The isolation of the ball and condition are very good, this quality is not available now. An excellent addition to any good Fluorite collection, this habit is rare worldwide and this is a choice example.
