Marvelous!
One of best off matrix chinese stibnite I've ever seen.
As Tuscany has had many stibnite mines, this mineral is one of my weaknesses...
Congratulations and warm greetings.
Sante


Thank you for your very kind words, Sante. I enjoy hearing from you.

Regards,
Don

Thank you, Tobi. What I like about this Fluorite is the deep saturated blue purple color surrounded by the clear needle quartz crystals. In the top left posterior part of the specimen, you can see a clear crystal of quartz surrounded by a deep blue purple fluorite crystal. Hard to imagine radiation treatment on this one.

I have seen these referred to as Tanzanite color Fluorites.

Regards,

Don
