A large and quite striking specimen of deep violet-blue Fluorite from Fujian, China. It features a group of highly modified Fluorite crystals inter-joined to create the graceful composition pictured. The crystals exhibit an attractive luster and gemmy clarity, and close examination reveals the presence of deeper purple phantoms under a lighter layer (see photo #6_. A sprinkling of tiny Calcite crystals on the bottom adds a nice textural contrast to an already beautiful piece. Our ONLY specimen of this very uncommon material.
