Fluorite on quartz
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Dong Po Mine Complex, Hunan Province, China <br /><br />2 3/4" across <br /><br />The author bought this fine fluorite specimen during his first visit to Changsha, Hunan in February 2016. The dominant crystal ( is undamaged.  One face on the reverse side of the dominant crystal is attached to a cleaved fragment of another smaller fluorite crystal. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Smaller crystals of fluorite have also grown between the quartz crystals.  Some of the smaller fluorite crystals are damaged but the esthetic detraction caused by them could be easily removed with a scribe.  Some of the quartz crystals are damaged but the esthetic detraction caused by this could also be minimised in the preparation lab. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The fluorite crystals on this piece are colorful - purple and green.  The dominant crystal displays phantom crystals.  This is not evident in the photo.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia </p>
