- Fluorite with Chalcopyrite on Quartz
- No.359 Vein, 268 area, PiaoTang mine, Ganzhou, Dayu, Jiangxi Prov.,China
- Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 5.2 x 3.5 cm
An aesthetic combo piece featuring a cluster of lustrous and translucent, pastel-green fluorite cubes, to 2.5 cm across, perched aesthetically on a lustrous, translucent, and colorless quartz crystal. Additionally, there are a couple of brassy yellow chalcopyrite crystals, to 1.3 cm across. A very unusual Chinese piece that looks like classic old Mexican material from Naica, at first glance! Collected 2004-12-16th, and from a prominent and carefully assembled collection of Jiangxi minerals with precise localities because this collector interacted with the miners at the time and specialized in this province's specimens. It is an old, unusual piece. Most people today would simply see it and say, by assumption, it is from the more commonly known Yaogangxian Mine in Hunan.
