Fluorite    Yongchung County, Quanzhou, Fujian Province, China.  These outstanding fluorites have recently made a big appearance on the mineral market under the descriptor, “tanzanite fluorite” due to their amazing bluish purple color.  The crystals form in a dodecahedral/ cube combination form that is very attractive and they are normally totally transparent!  This matrix specimen measures 7 x 5 x 3.3 cm and is composed of intergrown crystals to 2.4 cm each.  No damage to this fine example and the edge contacts that were once attached crystals are all naturally healed.  Wonderful color when backlit even though it’s a matrix specimen.  $275
