Fluorite with calcite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Xiang Huapu, Lanshan, Hunan Province, China <br /><br />5" across <br /><br />I wanted to hold this piece as soon as I first saw it despite the fact I have seen literally tons of green fluorite from Xiang Huapu over the years. I cannot recall having seen any calcite with fluorite combination specimens from Xiang Huapu - let alone any as esthetic as this one. <br /><br />The piece consist of pale-green, glassy lustered, gemmy, cubic fluorite crystals accented by small clusters of colorless, gemmy calcite crystal twins. Despite the fragile nature of the crystallized calcite, it is in perfect condition.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was traded from the collection of Professor Stephen Smale during a visit to his home in Hong Kong in November 2013.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />A clean saw mark is present at the base of this piece.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo  by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia </p>
