Lot Details
Green Fluorite
Fluorite - Ruyuan Fluorite Mine, Ruyuan Co., Shaoguan Pref., Guangdong Prov., China
This is a spectacularly gemmy cluster of limpid, transparent, glass-clear fluorites forming stacks like pagodas, atop a narrow matrix plate. Te crystals are literally "gemmy" and not just clear. The piece is good all around, and "looks" Chinese for its style which reminds one of Chinese buildings on a mountainside. This is a piece in fine condition , remarkable for its size and completeness, and is from mining of early 2013 at this famous locality. This style is different from what has been found here previously, which has lacked such glassy luster in the past.
Measures 15.3 x 8.1 cm x 6 cm
