Fluorite, Shangbao Mine. China
A pastel toned Fluorite in all the senses, from the milky white matrix stone to the super light turquoise of the crystals, with few having a heart of violet and plum pink fading in and out depending on how it is tilted. The naturally etched surfaces and the boquet-like growth of the crystals increases further that lovely optical effect. A spot of bright orange right in the middle of them catches further the eye in a perfect complementary contrast.
