What a spectacular piece! A cluster of totally gem, overall sea green Fluorite cubes with unmistakable zoning from a vibrant medium green in the core phantom that makes a perfect box in each one, followed by an outer very pale green outer zone for an effect that has to seen in person to appreciate the beauty fully! The Fluorites are stacked one upon another, yet are distinct unto themselves and all of them exhibit a bright luster. The cubes on this striking and aesthetic specimen measure anywhere from less than 1 cm up to 2.7 cm on edge. This eye-catching piece is nearly pristine save a little contacting locally around the periphery and the main display crystals are perfect with only a tiny corner missing on one on the back side. This was purchased in a January 2020 trip to China, my last visit to China before the closures, from the miner's home from the highgrade they kept back after selling at least 5000 other, lesser specimens. Dormant for a decade, this region has produced wonderful fluorites again. However, few are of this quality and perfection, and it was considered one of the best of size class by the miners, and by myself.
