Fluorite with Ferberite, Quartz and Calcite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 4.6 x 3.0 cm

A perfectly formed Fluorite cube 3.3cm on its longest edge that displays prominently and has a light blue core with a light purple outer zone and a thin, dark purple rim. Numerous, off-white, 2-3mm Calcite crystals frame the Fluorite around the base at the front and sides. Two glassy, partial Quartz crystals are present on the left side and there are several black prismatic Ferberite crystals of varying size distributed locally around the base. All of these are arranged aesthetically on a sliver of Quartz matrix. Classic style for this locality, and now seldom seen from modern production.
