Item Description

Striking and unusual gemmy bi-colored intergrown fluorite crystals from the famous Shangbao Mine. The water-clear to translucent cubes, with highly modified corners have beautiful grape-purple interiors with light mint-green to colorless outer sections. Prism faces are glass-clear to satin luster. Backlighting of the glass-clear faces reveals, that there are dramatic oriented purple starbursts in the crystal interiors! Four purple rays project out from the cores. Modest purple fluorescence. Fascinating fluorite from the Allen Dillwith Collection. OLD MATERIAL from the 1990s early days
