UPIM1 Fluorite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
3.3x 3.3x 2.4 cm
$280

A pink fluorite crystal from a fine made about 2 years back.  Specimens from this find were notable for being floaters-- this one has no visible contact, though there is a bit of hardened mine sludge still clinging to the back.

Unlike most others pink fluorites from the mine, these have not been laquered or oiled.  Many specimens from Huanggang (even quartz) typically have altered rinds or acid eaten surfaces that require oiling to be appreciated-- these were somehow spared that harsh treatment and are quite displayable without any enhancements.

Please note that the color of these fluorites varies with lighting.  The color is strongest under a full spectrum lightbulb, a bit weaker under fluorescent or tungsten bulbs, and a bit weaker still in sunlight.
