Fluorite on Fluorite
Cabinet, 13.6 x 11.8 x 4.6 cm
De'An Fluorite Mine, Wushan, De'An Co., Jiujiang, Jiangxi Prov., China
This is a beautiful plate with unusual pastel colored crystals of a less intense color than some, but also showing unique blue phantoms that I have only seen on a very few pieces. It is in remarkably good condition for the size, and is one of the most translucent, "glowing" examples of all the pieces we have. It is from the second pocket (summer 2013), which seems to have produced larger specimens and more translucent green fluorite, than the first. This is an elegant, really visually sculptural piece that is quite different from others here.
