Yaogangxian is a huge, underground tungsten-tin deposit. The mine covers an area of about 4 x 2.5 km and includes two large deposits of distinct type and mineralization style. For collector's, fluorite is among the most desirable mineral species which have been recovered from the mine. This is a superb example of the fluorite from Yaogangxian. It features excellent transparency, sharp cubic crystal form, bright luster, and subtle almost pastel colors of blue and purple. The popularity of Yaogangxian fluorites has increased dramatically in the last few years as mineral specimen production from the upper levels of the mine (where most of the finest mineral specimens were recovered) has declined to almost non-existent.
