A STRIKING and DRAMATIC CABINET fluorite specimen from 2006 finds in Henan Province, China. Intergrown, sharp fluorite cubes in weird, intergrown knobs comprise this very showy piece. The translucent fluorites are brown to yellow, when frontlit, but GLOW a gorgeous, golden-amber, when backlit! A highly unusual looking, complete all-around specimen with trivial contacting on the top and periphery wear on only one side. Valued at $500-750, for the unusual form and exotic color.
