    Fluorite
    Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit (Huanggangliang Mine; Huanggang Mine)
    Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Chifeng City (Ulanhad League; Chifeng Prefecture)
    Inner Mongolia, China

    Hailing from the world-famous pocket of Pink Fluorite found in August 2018, this represents one of the larger examples of the quality material featuring both excellent shape and rich coloration. The red-pink specimen is majestic in size, superlative in form and saturated in intense hue throughout, with superior translucency than most other sizable pieces. The singular offering was purchased directly in China by its current owner and is, essentially, free of any visible damage. Such larger octahedral examples came out of the mine only once during the time it was producing being the only pocket since the early 2000s with such material, and no more have been found since. Unlike so many other Pink Fluorites with a dull luster or edges marred by the presence of greenish-gray Hedenbergite reducing their beauty, this stunner has no such impairments. The size, color and form of this combine to result in a truly spectacular mineral of unparalleled quality. This is an extremely nice and highly significant offering standing as a top specimen in this assortment and in terms of Fluorites from China overall. Presented on a custom acrylic base, this highly collectible mineral is sure to the be centerpiece of any display case featuring top level specimens.
    Measurements: 5.31 x 5.12 x 3.54 inches (13.50 x 13.00 x 9.00 cm)
