A large specimen of this now-classic material called "raspberry fluorite" by many in the direct market. It is an exceptionally nice cabinet piece with many sharp, purple, complex fluorites to 3.5 cm in size and they do resemble large clusters of purple raspberries. In good lighting, it glows with color and the white to yellow-white drusy quartz provides phenomenal contrast! This mine produced just several pockets and has not been very productive compared to the Hunan fluorite locales. The base of the piece is sawn and displays the banded texture of the fluorite and quartz very well and it is contacted at both ends. Old material, now.
