2CN25 Fluorite on Muscovite

6.7x 5.3x 4.0 cm

Mt. Xuebaoding is known for a few species, primarily its scheelite, aquamarine, and kesterite.  Perhaps the rarest of the “main species” however, is fluorite.  I only saw a few examples, and this is one of only two that were undamaged.  Like the most of the scheelites and aquamarines, this piece displays the typical mica association, with the main fluorite sitting on a bed of muscovite.  It lacks a bit in color, but if you know your Chinese minerals, then you understand how rare and special this is—and to find one that isn’t broken, neither the easily cleavable fluorite nor the delicate muscovite—is particularly unusual.
