Calcite on Fluorite with Dolomite

Specimen ID: 4DJ-J6K

Calcite on Fluorite with Dolomite
As recorded:
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang, Hunan, China
82mm x 53mm
One of the best reasons to collect Chinese minerals are wonderful association pieces that are attractive, interesting and affordable. Here some "pineapple" style yellow calcites grow on a light purple field of sparkling Fluorite that is also decorated with small saddle dolomite crystals and quartz. Pretty, undamaged and not going to break the bank. Fine minerals do not always have to be expensive!
