Mineral rose

A flower like spray of late calcite blades are nestled (having precipitated from carbonate rich meteoric waters, ie rainwater percolating into the ground) above a pale blue fluorite that crystallised from the cooling water rich remnants of a granite. The fluorite displays beautiful cleavage steps reflecting the lines of weakness caused by low numbers of bonds in the crystal structure holding it together along these planes. The specimen comes from China, and sadly I can’t trace a scale.
