This is a beautiful cabinet-size specimen of large, sharp, lustrous black ferberite crystals forming an aesthetic cluster, with a group of purple fluorite crystals perched very nicely on the ends of some of the ferberite crystals. A great combination piece from this famous Chinese locality. The fluorite crystals have some very minor damage otherwise this piece is in good condition. Mark Cross photo.
