Fluorite, Hunan Province, China
description: 4" ac. Ex Jim and Dawn Minette collection. I bought this piece from Dan Weinrich at the Tucson Show in 2006 and he told me that it was the best piece he brought back with him from one of his many trips to China to buy mineral specimens. I enjoy this piece because of its clarity, the presence of a dominant crystal and the pleasing color. Although fluorite is perceived as a common mineral and although some collectors shy away from it for this reason, it continues to be one of the two most highly sought after species among seasoned collectors; the tourmaline group is also highly sought after.
