RM900   Fluorite with quartz

Huanggang Mines, Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China

These specimens, novelty, 2014, show very unusual fluorite crystals, with an uncommon color. They show cubic crystals beveled by the dodecahedron and deep hoppered growths. Also almost globular crystals in which the dodecahedral forms predominate. The color is very, very intense, vivid shades that vary between indigo and navy blue, clearly visible when light is incident. We observed also green tones within a few crystals. They have grown on quartz crystals covered by layers of smaller milky quartz. An aesthetic specimen for fluorite and crystal collectors.
