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 piece measures 5.7 x 4 x 3.5 cm and is composed of intergrown crystals to 3.7 cm each.  No damage to this fine example and the edge contacts that were once attached crystals are all naturally healed.  There is no matrix to interfer with light transmission on this one.  It is beautiful when lit properly from the side, top, or back.  Crystals this large don’t normally show their transparency this nicely.  $350
