Quanzhou, Yongchun Co.
While this specimen of purple Fluorite may be from a fairly recent find that produced a large number of gemmy examples, this piece is quite unlike the majority of the others with a large crystal size measuring 2.5 inches (6.4 cm), pagoda-like stepped octahedral faces and a unique, complex shard of Quartz matrix. The incredible luster of the singular crystal and its intense "Grape Juice" purple hue result in an amazing specimen that is effectively a one-of-a-kind offering for the locality. The deep color literally 'glows' when backlit properly, and the highly aesthetic nicely arranged piece comes out of a private Chinese Collection and is presented on a custom engraved acrylic base. This is an uncommon example of a common variety.
