- Fluorite (twinned)

Large, transparent, gemmy crystals to 5 cm add up to form a really sharp small cabinet specimen. These are classic Yaogangxian style in color and shape, but in a geometric sculptural style that is actually unusual for the mine where such crystals tend to be loose or in matrix, and seldom form clusters like this. It is a specimen that looks different, and differently dramatic, at both horizontal and vertical angles of display. The sharp crystals are pristine and undamaged, and as a bonus have slight phantoms within. Note the sharp interpenetration twin coming out of the larger, elongated rectangular crystal. Although twinned fluorites occur here, they are quite rare relative to other forms of fluorite. ex Gawan Fiore collection.
