Fluorite, Muscovite
Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 8.1 x 6.3 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China

I have seen literally tons of Yaogangxian material, but cannot recall seeing a single specimen like this one - with purple cubes of fluorite on this beautiful contrasting background of microcrystalline green muscovite. The effect is just beautiful! The fluorites measure to 2 cm across, and are arranged in an attractive ring on the matrix. Fine and unusual!
