Xianghualing Tin Mine, Linwu County, Chenzhou
13 x 11 CM (cabinet)
The large Octahedron here is over 7 CM, undamaged, lustrous and esthetically perched with others on a contrasting matrix . The crystalas all show the "micro stepping" being composed of hundreds of tiny fluorite crystals that are arranged together in the octahedra. A deep green that can backlight well, this piece is a very fine example of an older style of fluorite from Xinghauling not often available anymore.
