Fluorite - modified gem clear cubes (Ref: 21.1-169)

Xiayang, Yongchun County, Quanzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
51mm x 43mm x 34mm
minID: RQK-GRH
$1050
From a recent (2021) find at Xiayang, a cluster of vivid purple-blue cubes on matrix. These cubes all have the beveled edge modifications that are perfect and sharp, a textbook example. Even more clear and lustrous in person. This sits on its own at several good display angles, the first photo is what some would call the back because there is less Fluorite present though I like the contrast. No matter the angle of display the prominent crystals are fully perfect as seen though some outer crystals do have some edge roughness or contacts. All in all the condition is fine. This does show some of the color change effect from incandescent to daylight or LED lighting. This is a special feature of some Fujian Fluorites and some have called it a "tanzanite effect". The shift from purple to blue is clear, though I must say not quite as vivid as on some other pieces. An excellent example of the find and just a nice Fluorite from anyplace.
