A beautiful specimen of fluorite crystals from the
recent find at the Xiayang Mine (sometimes referred to as the "Yongchun
Mine.). While the vast majority of specimens from here are a somewhat
undersaturated gray green, some of them have deeper, more saturated green
color. The main crystal has a somewhat visible internal cleave, and a secondary crystal has a nick (visible in the pictures) but the overall color and arrangement are great.
The color of these pieces varies strongly with
lighting-- under incandescent light they look grayish and undersaturated.
To be best appreciated, they need the equivalent of indirect sunlight.
What is depicted in the pictures is what you would see if the piece were placed
next to a window on a cloudy day
