Purple Fluorite with Barite Crystals on Matrix, Guizhou Province, China


Off-white barite blades have grown on dark purple fluorite cubes that are partially quartz over coated. The faces of the fluorite have satin luster. The piece measures 18 cm wide by 11 cm tall and 11 cm front to back and weighs 5 lb. The locality is the Qinglong Mine, Guizhou Province, China. There is some minor cleaved damage and nicked edges, but it does not distract from the piece. The bottom of the matrix has been cut to make the piece display better.
