Fluorite on Quartz, with Arsenopyrite and Pyrite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Hunan Province, China
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.6 x 2.1 cm
Outstanding combination piece from the famous Yaogangxian Mine in China. This stunner has a beautiful, gemmy, 1.5 cm Fluorite resting on top of terminated, gemmy Quartz crystals. Associated are also Arsenopyrite and Pyrite. In addition, the Fluorite, instead of having the classic internal phantoms we are used to from this mine, has its edges colored purple instead. The effect is amazing. Great aesthetics, excellent luster, and frankly just a delightful specimen. Small miniature or large thumbnal sized.
