XYG03 Fluorite
Xiayang Mine, Yongchun Co., Fujian Prov., China
6.0x 4.6x 3.6 cm
$325

A beautiful fluorite crystal (contacted on the reverse) with a bit of attached quartz,  from the recent find at the Xiayang Mine (sometimes referred to as the "Yongchun Mine.). While the vast majority of specimens from here are a duller gray green, very few of them have rich blue hues which when combined with green and yellow zones lead to an incredibly saturated, rich blue-green color.  

The color of these pieces varies strongly with lighting-- under incandescent light they look grayish and undersaturated.  To be best appreciated, they need the equivalent of indirect sunlight.  What is depicted in the pictures is what you would see if the piece were placed next to a window on a cloudy day.
