A beautiful miniature specimen of lilac and lavender cubic Fluorite crystals richly scattered over a semi-translucent milky terminated Quartz crystal.  This delightful specimen is from the Yaogangxian mine in Hunan Province, China, a mine which works the tungsten-tin deposit in the contact aureole of the Mesozoic Yaogangxian pluton.  The Fluorite crystals vary between about 5 to 8 mm on edge, are semi-transparent and all contain excellent nested colour zoning and phantoms.  Scattered around the Fluorite are tarnished brassy cubic Pyrite crystals of up to 1 mm.  A splendid, zoned Fluorite from the Yaogangxian mine, China.
