Fluorite and Candle Quartz
A very aesthetic classic specimen from Inner Mongolia. The Fluorite on this piece have purple phantoms with little to no damage and are translucent. They are perched perfectly on a bed of Candle Quartz with Hedenbergite inclusions on the bottom. Unfortunately the Candle Quartz was broken in likely a pocket collapse and self-healed over time. If they were intact this piece would be tremendously more valuable. However it shows the impact of nature and its imperfections. Overall a fantastic collector’s piece.
