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.
