Fluorite- Pink
stock #19.1-677
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
2.2 x 1.4 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $240


A choice little thumbnail cluster of light pink transparent Fluorites. From the important new find at Huangang, these clear octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite clearly seen inside. The specimen is a chain of 4 discrete complete Octas with no matrix. Can be displayed in any orientation. This was a large find at Huangang but this level of quality was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is unique, absolutely unlike the pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear with good color. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices affordable this is certainly the right time to get a choice piece. Better in person.
SOLD Fluorite pink, new find
stock #SOLD 19.1-674
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
3.5 x 2.9 x 2.5 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0


A killer small miniature from the great new finds at Huangang, A perfect cluster of two sharp deep pink to almost red Fluorites. These Octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite. The condition of this is perfect on all sides, each corner and edge is undamaged. This was a very large and impressive find but this level of perfection was very rare. This was selected from hundreds of pieces. This style of Fluorite is quite unique and absolutely unlike any pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted and the interiors are very clear. The included fibers are easily seen. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices reasonable for such incredible specimens.
Fluorite -Pink Octahedral with inclusions
stock #19.1-676
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
1.8 x 1.2 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $220


From the great new finds at Huangang, this is a perfect thumbnail of two light pink octahedral crystals. The crystals are nicely juxtaposed and the whole is a small but esthetic piece of high quality. These transparent octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite. The condition of this is perfect on all sides, each corner and edge is undamaged. This was a very large and impressive find but this level of perfection was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is quite unique and absolutely unlike any pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear and the included fibers are easily seen.

Helvite/ Genthelvite on Quartz with Fluorite
stock #18AX-14B-107
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
8.8 x 5.4 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $950


A huge somewhat crude but very sharp Helvite series crystal is nestled in a cluster of prase type Quartz. These Helvite crystals are often zoned in this locality and may contain all members of the series (Danalite, Helvite and Genthelvite) in a single prism. This one has clearly also had some secondary alterations, and some parts of the Helvite faces have been encrusted with tiny Quartz crystals. The termination has an extra touch - a purple octahedron of Fluorite perched near the tip adds contrast. No damage, the Helvite is nearly 4 CM tall which is very large from any locale and especially big for Huanggang. An early specimen (prior to 2008) from this now prolific mine. An impressive example of this locale and specie.
Fluorite - clear dodecahedral crystals with internal crystals
stock #17.1-194
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
4.4 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $675
Dec 2018

A textbook perfect miniature specimen with an impact far bigger than its size. While the external form is outstanding, the insides of the Fluorites clearly show incredible, sharp, inclusions of perfect pink Dolomite rhombs. The matrix of Dolomite, Calcite and Sphalerite adds nice contrast to the glassy Fluorites. In perfect condition damage-wise which is very rare. Some faces show a secondary etching while others are perfectly smooth and transparent. The 26 sided crystals are a perfect model for this less common habit. Best appreciated in person, a very choice example of why Huanggang is the most significant mineral locality in China today.
Calcite balls with Quartz and Actinolite
stock #16.1-177
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
7.2 x 5.5 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $190
Dec 2018

A remarkable and strange Calcite formed of spherical clusters of flat crystals. The balls are connected in a chain and these are covered with bright sparkling Quartz in tiny doubly terminated clear crystals much like Herkimer Diamonds. A scattering of Hairlike Actinolite crystals are seen with magnification impaling both the Quartz and Calcite. Choice and in excellent condition, the esthetics are impressive. Another of the mineral wonders from the incredible deposits at Huangang.
Fluorite (blue) on Quartz
stock #18-AX-29-014
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
8.3 x 4.3 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $690
Late Summer 2018

One of the best newer things to come from Inner Mongolia are these inky blue Fluorite crystals covering milky Quartz crystals. This one is a very choice example in fine condition and with strong esthetics. We examined hundreds of specimens from this find but only selected a few few based on composition, condition and overall quality. This has the most intense color of any. I consider this association one of the best new mineral finds of the past few years and of course the supply is not infinite. In strong lighting the Fluorites really glow a deep indigo, and this example has very well formed complex crystals to 2 cm in size. The pair of sharp hexagonal terminations of the milky Quartz that poke out of the top are an especially nice touch. We have a nice selection of these in all price ranges, this one is a far better than average and good value. Super example of the find, and a very striking display specimen.
