Fluorite with Quartz casts after Calcite
Dongpo Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzohou prefecture
Hunan Province, China
8.8 x 5.3 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Early summer 2021

Very odd yet attractive specimen of two Fluorite crystals that are both pierced by scalenohedral holes in the shape of former Calcite crystals. The cavities are filled with drusy Quartz crystals that sparkle and contrast with the green Fluorite. An unusual Fluorite from the Dongpo Mine, this has 2 larger and 3 smaller casts inside the Fluorite cubes. A nice piece for those who enjoy oddities.
