- Fluorite on Calcite
- Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 5.2 x 3.3 cm
- ChangLongXiang Tungsten Mine, Ganzhou city, ChongYi co., Jiangxi Prov., China
A cute, sculptural piece! Cubes of lustrous and translucent, lilac-colored fluorite, to 2 cm across, are perched in a cluster upon lustrous and translucent, white calcite. A few fluorite crystals exhibit dark lavender color centers or phantoms. An unusual locality piece with nice aesthetics, this looks like it could be from Yaogangxian although the calcite association style is a bit unusual for there. Collected 2006-3-10th, and from a prominent and carefully assembled collection of Jiangxi minerals with precise localities.
