This attractive miniature Fluorite on Quartz with minor Ferberite is from the Yaogangxian mine in Hunan Province, China, which works a tungsten-tin deposit in the contact aureole of the Mesozoic Yaogangxian composite pluton.  Intensely colour-zoned cubic Fluorite crystals to 1 cm on edge are aesthetically distributed over a matrix of crystallised white milky Quartz covering blades of metallic black lustrous Ferberite.  The Fluorite is zoned in shades of purple, lilac, lavender and sky blue with many individual crystals containing at least twenty nested colour-zoned layers.  A terrific miniature.
