Fluorite With Calcite
Cabinet, 11.4 x 9.2 x 5.1 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, near Chenzhou, Hunan Province, China

This is a combination specimen featuring a pastel blue fluorite with purple edge phantoms, 5 cm across, nestled in matrix of calcite. From recent finds in 2013, this combination is just unusual. In person, there are more subtleties of color and phantom edges that the eye picks up better than the camera. Joe Budd photos.
