A beautiful cluster with grassy green fluorites with subtle phantoms and a high amount of translucency. This is an unusual newer find from China. We found this early on in China, before people fully realized that these were coming out of mines in the Yindu area rather than other mining sources in the Chifeng District. We sold a few labeled as Chifeng, but it seems now that they can be attributed to the "Yindu Mines" which are still several holes in the ground, owned by the same company. It seems there were relatively few specimens of this style, and this would have been from 2018-ish. This specimen has large gemmy crystals to nearly 4 cm with gorgeous wispy phantoms within. It seems mostly complete all around. Two corners pointing to the right have edge bevels which look at first like damage, but align so perfectly to each other, we believe they are growth modifications.
