Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 5.5 x 4.7 cm
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia A.R., China
A stunning gem crystal with a robust, totally transparent crystal measuring 3.2 x 3.2 cm, just perched like an egg atop. The clarity is AMAZING and the luster is very good. These new fluorites from this remote mine have set a new standard in clear fluorite quality in recent years. Not since the material from Dalnegorsk in the 1980s have we seen such ice-clear fluorites, and then those were mostly cubes while these are complex cuboctahedra. Complete all around, and with minor quartz for accent. This was mined in 2013. Joe Budd photos.
