Fluorite (alternating color faces, internal bubbles)
stock #Alec 29-035
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
4.4 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $2600


A killer miniature with a perfect 3 CM fluorite (complete all around) neatly perched on calcite matrix. Great architecture and esthetics, but what sets this apart is the faces have alternating colors! The slightly frosted deep blue faces offset from the glass clear faces that have a white to lilac-purple color. The interior is seen clearly through the unfrosted windows and is almost colorless. Looking closer the inside is loaded with bubbles, the larger ones are frozen inside negative crystals but some very tiny bubbles move slowly in their oil filled cavities. There are also complete internal cubes and partial cubes to be seen with magnification. Absolutely fascinating, attractive and even better in person. Even after seeing thousands of Huangang specimens this one is a significant standout.
