New Find! Fujian Province China Fluorites

We were lucky to acquire numerous specimens from two major new Chinese fluorite finds in 2016-2017: the first are large, beautiful mint-green to blue complex "aztec pyramid" style crystals associated with dolomite and quartz from the Dongpo Ore Field near Chenzhou in Hunan Province.

The other findĀ  is in Fujian Province and features a combination of greenish-blue dodecahedral crystals which have overgrown simple purple octahedra for an aesthetic and morphologically unusual effect. The larger cuboctahedral crystals typically have a light blueish-green color and feature characteristic and intense purple color centers or "dots", making them all the more unique.

We have seen a lot of Chinese fluorite between our offices in both Colorado and Changsha China, but these two lots are something special, and are sure to be a favorite of collectors at all levels. We are happy to offer a small selection of these new fluorites here, which come from an unspecified locality in Fujian Province, in China's southeast corner close to Taiwan. We have more specimens from this find, from large "museum size" display specimens to inexpensive wholesale flats and half-priced 'keystone' specimens for other dealers, so if you don't see what your looking for here, please don't hesitate to drop us a line at: minerals@collectorsedge.com, or give us a call at: +1 303-278-9724. Thanks for looking and enjoy!
