18CN19 Fluorite on Quartz
Jiangsu Prov., China
4.6x 3.0x 3.2 cm
$325

A beautiful example of octahedral fluorite with cubic modifications and stepped faces, somewhat reminiscent of the more common material from Shangbao.  This piece comes from a recent pocket; I tried to find larger ones but they unfortunately had a certain messiness due to crystals that were too clumped together, or not positioned well on matrix.

This one is displayable from a couple different angles and is damage free, though etching on the back means that is should be mounted as shown in the any of the pictures.
