Fluorite, pink octahedral crystal - Mongolia
pink octahedral Fluorite - Huanggang Fe-Sn Deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China
single crystal 12 x 11 x 16mm
A perfect frosted baby pink coloured Octahedral crystal of Fluorite from this recent and exciting find. These crystals are highly sought after and its great to have smaller floater crystals like this, that are as affordable as they are attractive.
This lovely example I picked up at the Munich show where there were plenty of not so good exaamples. This crystal has no point of attachment and is frosted with a lovely natural etched finish.
It is made more interesting by the black acicular crystals included within the Fluorite, of an amphibole, presumed to be Bissolite.
A classic of the future .
