A STRIKING and BEAUTIFUL fluorite specimen from a small, one-time find at the Shangbao Mine about 3-4 years ago. The gemmy, water-clear, sea-green fluorite cubes to 3.5 cm have these incredible, inclusions of vivid purple fluorite oriented in the corners of the large cubes at the top of the specimen. The arrangement of the large, included cubes at the top of the piece is DRAMATIC. The small bit of contacting on the lower, front of this amazing piece is very minimally detracting. Valued at $1500. This is a large specimen for this particular style, and you do not seen them back on the market vrey often now.
