Fluorite on Calcite with Aragonite
Qinglong Mine, Qianxinan, Guizhou, China
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 5.7 x 3.9 cm

A sculptural arrangement of sparkling Calcite crystals that have been dusted with Fluorite adorns snow-white Aragonite. The sculptured appendages of the Aragonite consist of tiny crystals that just sparkle! The stacked tiny Calcite crystals atop the matrix are decorated with 1 to 2mm purple Fluorite cubes in two roughly linear arrangements, like little steps atop the calcites, itself atop the aragonite. An attractive piece! Quite the unusual and aesthetic specimen from China! 2019 find.
