What a stunning and aesthetic red-pink Fluorite crystal from the famous Huanggang Mines of China - the Red Pocket of August 2019. This GORGEOUS, GEM, RED-PINK crystal is a textbook octahedron measuring 5.6cm on its longest edge. The Fluorite is well-formed, razor sharp, and it exhibits an almost glassy luster, considerably different from the majority of pieces from this find. The color and gemminess of this piece is just astounding! The top octahedral point is transparent and pink-red and one can see right down and through the crystal in most areas and there is a slight turbid area near the base. The right side and base are slightly occluded due to the presence of complementing green Byssolite inclusions. Overlapping triangular growth patterns on the faces enhances the presentation of this beautiful Fluorite. This is one of the better red-pink, small cabinet single crystals in terms of gemminess and luster overall, recovered from a single large pocket on August 26-28, 2019, in which the preponderance of them were a lighter or brown-included shade of pink. The Fluorite fluoresces a light purple in ultraviolet light.
