Gorgeous, gemmy, intensely purple, grape-like Fluorite cuboctahedrons (with the largest composite group measuring 4.2 cm across) are richly and aesthetically scattered on a thick hefty mound of banded and etched Quartz from a discovery in the early 2000s at the De’an Mine in China. The Fluorite crystal faces actually have a slight curve to them, which is not terribly common for this material. On the surface, the color is a dark purple hue, but when backlit, the color has a slight pinkish tinge to it under halogen light, while LED lights show more of a blue tone. A superb specimen for the size, given the coverage and quality of the grape-juice-colored crystals. Virtually no damage of note, outside of the periphery / base where it was removed from the pocket.
Locality: De'an Fluorite Mine, Wushan, De'an Co., Jiujiang Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
Specimen size: 16.7 x 11.5 x 11.2 cm (large cabinet)
