Fluorite, Wolframite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm
This specimen features a 4 cm stepped purple octohedron of exceptionally deep color, perched atop a glistening, jet-black, thick crystal of wolframite. It is very 3-dimensional, more so in person than it appears. The fluorite is pristine and undamaged and wraps around the top of the wolframite (though it does not continue down the backside, but rather terminates on a plane with the wolframite edge). 6 x 5 x 4 cm
