A dramatic and excellent large 360 degree Fluorite specimen from a small 2016 find at a very obscure locality in Zhejiang Province. This highly aesthetic mounded specimen is composed of gorgeous, gemmy rich emerald green Fluorite octahedrons measuring to 3.9 cm on edge. The octos are preferentially coated with secondary overgrowths of worm like clusters of purplish-gray, frosted, stepped Fluorite cuboctahedrons and cubes. The octohedrons are reminiscent of of emerald green Fluorites from Riemasvaak, South Africa, but the emerald green hue on this amazing piece is even richer. The crystals glow when backlit. As the photos show, this specimen precents well on three sides, with only the bottom being an attachment point. I saw a few of these at the 2018 Tucson Show, but I think this one is better than any others I saw. In fine condition.

Calcite Crystal Cluster
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia, Africa
7.2 x 6.2 x 2.7 cm
Ex-Kay Robinson Collection
A classic Tsumeb Calcite crystal specimen with layered, stepped rhombohedra of a slight smoky color on very minor matrix. The Calcites are very gemmy and in fine condition. The reddish hue of the matrix creates an attractive two-tone effect.
At the recent Tucson Mineral show, I came across a few specimens of the classic golden Fluorites from the Moscona Mine, which had greater gemminess and clarity than typical of ones I have seen in the past few years. This is one of them. The photo barely does it justice, ie, it is even better in person. In very good condition.

In mineralogy, a pseudomorph is a mineral or mineral compound that appears in an atypical form (crystal system), resulting from a substitution process in which the appearance and dimensions remain constant, but the original mineral is replaced by another.
