Fluorite and quartz on muscovite
<p style="text-align: justify;">5" across</p> 
<p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> 
<p style="text-align: justify;">Yaoganxian Mine, Hunan Province, China  
<br /><br />This high quality combination specimen is from one of the world's more important fluorite localities. The piece is set apart by the following: 
<br /><br />(a) Both the quartz and the fluorite crystals are pristine. Since fluorite is such a soft and easily cleaved mineral species, pristine crystals of fluorite are relatively uncommon. 
<br /><br />(b) The color of the fluorite crystals is desirable, distinctive and as seen on your computer screen. 
<br /><br />(c) Both species display a high luster. 
<br /><br />(d) The composition of this piece is esthetic. The mica covered matrix is well proportioned in relation to the quartz and fluorite crystals that it displays. 
<br /><br />(e) All of the crystals are transparent and free of ugly veils and inclusions.</p>
