DescriptionFluorite and Calcite
Minggang Mine, Shihe District
Xinyang Prefecture, Henan Province
China is well known for the Fluorite it produces, and here is another great example. This oversized plate features large and rich, green bubbly Fluorite clusters of various size over sharp, tan Calcite crystals. The entire association lays on a sheet matrix. The Fluorite is highly saturated, giving the piece an overall bold greenish hue. The color and size makes the association extremely impressive. This plate delivers serious contrast and a lot of character. The significant example from China is in good condition.
