Fluorite included by Boulangerite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref.
Hunan Province, China
8.2 x 5.9 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $470
new year 2021

A dark purple cluster of Fluorite cubes with slightly rounded faces that are thickly packed with masses of Boulangerite hairs. In many places the Boulangerite is protruding from the Fluorite making complex nests of metallic wire-like crystals. The specimen is an older (2004) vintage piece from Yaogangxian and is a super example of this association. The Fluorite is transparent to translucent and with magnification the Boulangerite inside the crystals is seen as straight hairs, curved wires and coiled spirals, loops and rings. This find of included Fluorite was remarkable and this specimen is a superb, large example. The specimen is a mix of larger cubes up to 2.5 CM to masses of tiny curved cubes in clusters.
