3.5" Glass-Clear, Purple & Green Cubic Fluorite Cluster - China

This is a stunning cluster of clear, green cubic fluorite crystals with purple spotted zones that formed in association with quartz crystals. Underlying green octahedral fluorite crystals can be seen peeking between the fluorite and quartz. It comes out of the Hunan Province of China, a region known for its stunning fluorite formations.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Fluorite is a halide mineral comprised of calcium and fluorine, CaF2. The word fluorite is from the Latin fluo-, which means "to flow". In 1852 fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon known as fluorescence, or the property of fluorite to glow a different color depending upon the bandwidth of the ultraviolet light it is exposed to. Fluorite occurs commonly in cubic, octahedral and dodecahedral crystals in many different colors. These colors range from colorless and completely transparent to yellow, green, blue, purple, pink or black. Purples and greens tend to be the most common colors seen.
