Fluorite (Modified octahedral) on Muscovite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $200

From the high elevations of Mt Xuebaoding (better known for Scheelites and Cassiterites), this ice like fluorite shows the rare habit of octahedron with a cube face on the tip of each corner. The surface has the "melted" look the re-crystallization makes and has a pleasing esthetic. Ex Bert Ottens and Marty Zinn Collections, this type of Fluorite is no longer being found and is a great addition to any serious Fluorite suite.
