China's Yaogangxian mine has produced what many connoisseurs consider to be the finest fluorite crystals from China. This superb cabinet-size specimens helps illustrate why this is, featuring icy-blue, transparent crystals to ~6 cm on edge in a beautiful grouping on just the right amount of matrix. The color is stunning and the crystals are very gemmy and lustrous, making for a gorgeous display specimen that can be viewed from multiple angles. This style and quality of fluorite from the Yaogangxian mine has not come out for many years now, and new finds at the mine are not of this quality from what I have seen. A fine Chinese classic that will light up any display case. Annette Slade photo.
