Fluorite -color change

Xiayang, Yongchun County, Quanzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
6.3 x 3.1 x 2.2 (cabinet)
price: $480
Late Summer 2018

From this great new find, this is a superb small cabinet specimen of sharp, undamaged and very colorful Fluorite. The color shift on these Fluorites is striking, it goes from a royal blue to a deep purple depending on the light source. The crystals are wonderful modified cubes, transparent and have a fine contrast to the matrix. We examined hundreds of pieces from this find and selected just a few, there were many damaged pieces and this level of perfection was not common. The discovery of these in Fujian province was an exciting new find last year and has now already dried up.
Fluorite- new find, indigo blue
stock #17.1-664
Xiayang, Yongchun County, Quanzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
4.3 x 4 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Worldwide mix summer

A choice clean gem clear deep blue Fluorite from the new finds in Fujian province. The Fluorite is fully transparent, 3.1 CM in diameter and nicely perched on a dark matrix. In fine condition there are some tiny geometric edge contacts but no damage, and the clarity is such that you can clearly see the druzy Quartz crystal matrix through the Fluorite. These have a strong color change in daylight vs incandescent and are either a royal purple or a deep indigo blue depending on the light source. This find has produced quite a few specimens but the vast majority have damage or other issues. Choice pieces like this are very few and already hard to get. Lots of impact in any display.

Spring update

A superb toenail sized Fluorite is very fine condition with amazing color. New find that has been making big news, very few of these are damage free or have such well defined faces all around. These have been called by some "Tanzanite" Fluorite due to the similar color and dramatic color change to deep purple under incandescent light. An outstanding small specimen with lots of display impact, choice and with color unlike any other Fluorite known worldwide!

Pre Holiday 2017

An incredible example from a new find of inky blue Fluorites which has been making big mineral news. Sharp, lustrous and gem clear cluster of modified cubes that some are calling "Tanzanite color Fluorite" which is a controversial name. This also shows a pronounced color change in some lighting from deep royal purple to this rich blue that is quite unique. We have examined many of these and selected the very best in terms of color, clarity, condition and esthetics. This is far better than average, very minimal damage with contacts at outer edges and back with the main display face clean and pristine. It seems this find is fairly large but very few pieces are anything close to this quality and the prices can be very high. From Fujian Province, the earliest specimens from this find had some misleading location data. The locality we are listing has been confirmed as correct for this specimen but there may be other spots nearby as well. A choice, attractive specimen and a very good value.
