From: Shangbao Mine, Hunan Province, China
Size: 18.0 x 22.0 x 4.9cm
This has got to be the most aesthetic Shangbao specimen of all time! It's incredible! Starting at the bottom we have a base of matrix covered in white dolomite crystals. Then we have the impressive body of scalenohedral calcit crystals, and topping that off is a huge fluorite crystal with a crown of white quartz. Amazing! If that were not enough, the entire backside is covered in golden pyrite crystals, and there are a handful of perfect pyrite cubes on the sides and front of the specimen.
The blue & purple fluorite crystal measures a whopping 5.4cm wide and has a perfect, shiny pyrite cube attached on one side. The specimen does not have any damage that we could find - all off the crystal terminatins appear intact, and there are no cleavages or dings anywhere. This is truly an epic specimen!
The specimen comes with a custom acrylic display base.
