NV06 Fluorite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
5.3x 4.8x 4.1 cm

A great example of purple fluorite from Inner Mongolia.  To begin with, purple fluorites have been somewhat uncommon at the locality-- the vast majority have been colorless. The color of this piece however, is especially bright-- I have only seen a few examples of this material.

This is not a complere octahedron (the back is etched) but there is no significant damage to the froont of the piece.  In a couple spots, very minor micro chopping is visible under magnification.  I have photographed the piece under strong lighting, as it would be in a display case  It does not take much for the piece to completely light up.

I posted a couple of these before, this one is significantly cheaper because I paid less for it myself, than for the others.
