CM13 Fluorite on Calcite

$280

A nice fluorite specimen from the Shangbao mine. While Shangbao is notable for its pyrites and dolomites, it is particularly famous for its fluorite. While mst of the early pieces fo the minehad simple cubic crystals, a couple years ago there was a small find of specimens containing these interesting cubo-octahedral crystals This piece is damage free, and there are two intact crystals to 2.7 cm on matrix. Shangbao specimens are some of the more sought after Chinese fluorites, and are also one of the few Chinese flourites that are in rather short supply...
