Fluorite, Muscovite
Large Cabinet, 17.4 x 12.9 x 5.4 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Fifteen or so crystals of super-transparent, razor-sharp fluorite, of a light blue-green color with pretty purple phantoms inside. The crystals measure to 2 cm on edge. They are set on a pretty bed of tiny rosettes of khaki-green muscovite. They are MUCH prettier in person, particularly under good light, such as case halogens - the brilliant teal color really jumps out - they are not bluish-purple as the camera made them appear, but a gorgeous and uncommon blue-green - and BRIGHT, with super luster.
