Fluorite (Fluorescent) With Muscovite
Thumbnail, 2.3 x 2.2 x 2.0 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, Hunan Province, China
A truly classic Yaogangxian Fluorite, being totally gemmy with a sharp, dramatic phantom. In this case, the crystal is a light blue with lustrous, rippled faces. The phantom is purple, and is itself zoned. The Fluorite rests on a thin matrix plate covered with fine Muscovites. The crystal has a rich, royal blue fluorescence. A first-class thumbnail with great aesthetics - mesmerizing in the details, in person.
