ID: CC20580
Just within the bounds of being described as a miniature, this most attractive example of zoned purple Fluorite on micro-Quartz crystals is from the Yaogangxian mine in Yizhang County, Hunan Province, China. This mine works a tungsten-tin deposit in the contact aureole of the Yaogangxian composite pluton, with two distinct ore deposit types: Quartz vein-type and skarn-type. The Fluorite crystals measure up to 1 cm and are concentrically colour-zoned displaying nested diminishing cubic phantoms.
