RF331: Fluorite - $400
Yaogangxian Mine, Chenzhou, Hunan, China

A rather large and very highly transparent, light minty green fluorite cluster from a classic Chinese locality. The fluorites reach an impressive 8.8 cm in length. The faces are water clear whereas the beveled edges are slightly frosted. Transparency is so great that the matrix is easily visible underneath the largest fluorite. The color is unusual for the Yaogangxian Mine (most fluorites from this locality are purple or blue), and the size is exceptional. Except for the usual edge and base issues (which are minimal in this case), there is no damage. Displays quite nicely without a stand.
