Dongposhan Mine, Hunan Province, China
12.0 x 7.3 x 5.1 cm.
A large and quite striking specimen of the legendary “holographic phantom” Fluorite from the Dongposhan mine in Hunan, China. It features a hand-sized group of light-green Fluorite with two crystals containing a rectangular blue phantom that seems to float below the surface. I looked through two flats of this material and selected the only one that met my standards of aesthetics and condition (most of this material seems to be easily damaged). There is the typical contacting around the edges but the crystal surfaces are in pristine condition. Needless to say, one of a kind.
