RM2973   Fluorite and quartz

Qinglong Mine, Qinglong County, Qianxinan, Guizhou, China

Group of fluorite crystals with a cubic shape, but with the edges and vertices beveled by forms of the trisoctahedron. These beveled edges display a deep purple color that contrasts with the rest of the crystal. They are translucent and stand out on a matrix with small quartz crystals. Under long-wave ultraviolet light they emit a bluish to violet color. A very aesthetic specimen.

Size: 8.2 x 5 x 5 cm.
Main crystal: 8 mm edge/arista.

Fluorescent under long wave UV
