    Fluorite with Pyrite
    Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field
    Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan

    Out of the famous Yaogangxian Mine in the Hunan Province, this fine Fluorite from China is incredible. A relatively massive cubic crystal measuring over 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) on edge perches above a varied chain of smaller crystals. The 'gemmy' transparency of the primary cube is unreal, and the bluish-purple hue is simply captivating. From a remarkable pocket of unusually clear large Fluorites found in 2017, this piece needs little explanation. Presented on a custom engraved acrylic base, this offering is the ideal collector specimen with size, shape, color and form resulting in one superb representation of the popular variety. This should appeal to any collector of Fluorites regardless of locality. The mineral is in pristine condition, with no visible damage. The razor-sharp and near perfect crystal offers an immense visual appeal. Below the focal point of the piece, its mix of crystalline material serves to anchor and showcase the big crystal.
    Measurements: 4.90 x 3.15 x 2.61 inches (12.44 x 8.00 x 6.63 cm)
