An incredible Yindu Fluorite with a glass-clear blue crystal that has a deep purple cloud inside and a fine edge phantom as well. Super sharp and resting on Calcite the Fluorite has impeccable bright luster. The overall effect is like looking into an aquarium. Good Yindu Fluorites are now very much admired and sought after, as they are both beautiful and unlike most any other Fluorite. One edge of this elongated cube is contacted where it was on matrix but there is no damage, breaks or chips. This rests on a crystalized mass of white Calcite and the contrast is excellent. Better in person too.
A killer thumbnail from the unbelievable finds at the Yindu Mine (China). We have been very impressed with the this locality since it began producing fine specimens, however there has been almost nothing in thumbnail size of any quality. This is the first really good piece we have seen in this size. Well-composed and balanced with a perfect gem clear zoned cube prominently perched on matrix. Excellent luster and better in person, the vivid purple core is set in a clear blue box. Yindu has made some great impressions for a few of the better specimens found over the past two years. The great ones are just a tiny percentage but they are amazing and already command some very high prices. This is a fine piece of competition grade in a small size that is not insanely expensive.
