Fluorite - cubo-octahedral crystals on Dolomite (Ref: 5.1-104)

Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang, Hunan Province, China
54mm x 48mm x 29mm
minID: 99C-J04
$300
An early Shangbao specimen with very unusual color. The Fluorite is an iridescent, yellow to orange, and has well-defined faces. The color seems to be due to an oxide coating that is only partly inside the Fluorite. The back of the specimen is cleaved and shows that the Fluorite is colorless inside. Most Shangbao Fluorites have been typical purple and green, so this is very unusual. The cleaved backside keeps the costs of this piece much lower but is not visible on the display side. We have never seen another with this habit/ color from Shangbao.
