Description:A classic display specimen from Shangbao featuring a group gemmy, sharp, lustrous rich green and purple "phantom" Flourite crystals with smooth broad cube and octahedral faces with small stepped modifying faces on the corners. The most impressive and unique aspect of the piece is that it's actually a complete "floater" as the entire back / reverse side of the specimen is totally healed (re-healed) / re-crystallized, so there is no point of attachment. Combine this with the gorgeous three-dimensional shape of the piece, and you have a really cool Fluorite that would make a great addition to a miniature collection, a Fluorite suite or a Chinese mineral collection. Valued at $2,000.
