Mineral Specimen: Flourite on Quartz, China.
Mineral Specimen: Fluorite on Quartz sourced from China:
Fluorite has been used in
carvings and statues in ancient Egypt and for hundreds of years in China because of its
softness. This specimen has an evenly distributed green color and has grown from a
strong base of smoky and colorless quartz. It is unusual in that it has grown as a
smoother structure than the typical cubic shapes often seen.
