2CN16 Fluorite
Xiayang Mine, Yongchun Co., Fujian Prov., China
7.0x 4.8x 3.9 cm

A beautiful “fluorite geode,” continuing numerous deep purple fluorites of the variety that has been marketed as “tanzanite colored.”  Although not the largest, this was my favorite piece from the group.  Most fluorite specimens, especially from China, seem to be flat plates, or clusters of crystals.  Seldom do you get this geode-like appearance, and the contrast with the white quartz combined with the small windows at the back and the luster of the fluorite, make for a particularly beautiful display.
