Xie Fang Mine, Jiangxi Province, China
16.2 x 14.2 x 3.5 cm.
A large and colorful Barite/Fluorite combination from the Xie Fang mine in Jiangxi, China. It features a big plate of nicely crystallized blue-gray Fluorite which is sprinkled with numerous GEMMY golden Barite crystals. I purchased this remarkable specimen in 2008, not long after this deposit was discovered, and it differs from the more recent material in that the Fluorite matrix is composed of large crystals rather than druzy Quartz. In excellent condition as pictured, and needless to say, ONE-OF-A-KIND.
