PostPosted: Aug 11, 2019 07:43    Post subject: Fluorite from China - exact locality?  

A friend of mine got this fluorite from China, the colourless cube (~ 1cm) sits on a matrix of tiny quartz crystals and has some zoning/phantoms inside. The label says Shangrao, but I rather think it could be from Yaogangxian, never seen anything like that from Shangrao. Any idea about it?

I thought of Yaogangxian because both the zoned cube and the matrix of tiny quartzes could fit. But there are so many fluorite localities in China ... maybe one of you has an idea where it could be from ...

Thanks :-)

Sorry not to agree but I have never seen a fluorite in cube-form or colourless from De'an, only varieties of green and purple in octahedral form or even more complex crystals. I have seen a lot of De'an fluorites and I owned some, nothing from that mine is even close to this specimen ...
