Fluorite - spinel twin
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan Province, China
6.3 x 2.2 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very rare Chinese example of a light pinkish spinel- twinned Fluorite perched on a Muscovite matrix along with a few small Aquamarine Beryls. From the great locale of Xuebaoding, which has been the source of several habits of cubic Fluorite, but spinel twins and in this color are almost unheard of. Etched faces on all sides there is no damage seen even at 20 magnification. An important specimen for this major locale.
