Fluorite, Pyrite, Calcite, Quartz
Shangbao Mine, Hunan, China
8.9 x 7.5 x 3.0 cm.
A superb 5-mineral combination from the fabulous Shangbao mine in Hunan, China. It features a rich deep purple cubododecahedral Fluorite crystal that exhibits so many stepped cubic faces that it almost appears to be spherical. The Fluorite crystal is artfully positioned on a nicely contrasting matrix and shared with well-crystallized examples of Quartz, Calcite, Pyrite, and Dolomite. Shangbao mine specimens of this caliber are very uncommon and highly desired by collectors of both fine Fluorites and Chinese multi-minerals.
