Clear Blue Cubic Fluorite on White Clevelandite Matrix Minerals (probably treated)


Stunning multiple inter-grown cubes of clear blue fluorite set on a snowy white crystalline Clevelandite matrix.

This piece comes from the Yaogangxian mining area in Hunan Province, China.

The recent influx of clear blue fluorites to the mineral market has led to the speculation that pieces are treated by irradiation (like an x-ray it poses no safety risk and there is no residual radioactivity). This piece probably falls into that category.

It has been said that these irradiated pieces may fade in color with time, but the rate or degree of fading has not been demonstrated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you combine shipping for multiple pieces in an order?

Yes, we are happy to combine shipping for multiple pieces. Our pieces have different weights, however, and that makes it a bit challenging to combine shipping as you are ordering, but you will only pay the actual combined shipping cost plus a $1.00 handling & material fee. We will refund any overages as soon as we create the shipping label (thst's the point when we know the actual price for shipping).
