Fluorite with Calcite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 6.5 x 4.3 cm

We were lucky to buy much of the pocket and get them to a proper lab, for cleaning - resulting in these dramatic "drapery" specimens of calcite on stunning green fluorite. This is a dramatic green phantomed fluorite crystal from 2020 finds at the famous Yaogangxian Mine. The color is accented and perhaps accentuated by the calcite crystals atop, that help block light from going out and darken the apparent color within. This is one of the more gorgeous specimens in this size, for association, color, and balance. The closer you look, the more subtle green-hued phantom layers you will see, ending with a deep purple phantom floating within the core.
