Fluorite on magnetite
description: LOCALITY: Huang Gang Mine, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China 4" across Ex Professor Stephen Smale collection This piece was acquired via a trade with Steve Smale in November 2013. This fine piece consist of a dominant crystal of fluorite of complex morphology placed near the middle of a well proportioned, dark, contrasting matrix. The contrasts between the crystal and matrix in terms of color and luster contribute to the esthetics of this piece. The fluorite crystal is gemmy but with a milky hue about it. The fluorite also contains pretty golden-looking inclusions. This is the finest of this type of fluorite from Inner Mongolia that I have seen.
