I just read a post about irradiated fluorite from China. The purpose is to give a vivid blue colour. Can anyone please tell us more about this practice?

Hi Pierre--there was a recent discussion thread about this topic on Mindat. It may shed some light on the subject:

Thank you Chris. I had a look at that. How did you manage to post a link without the spam filter blocking it? I hope one of the administrators will fix the link I posted.

Thanks for the heads up Pierre, I wasn't aware that they had started irradiating the fluorite. I'll be checking the fluorite out a little closer this year in Tucson.
