Fluorite and Calcite, Weishan Mine, Jining, Shandong, China

Fluorite and calcite combinations from China are pretty common. This one however, just seems different. Perhaps it's that the calcite isn't in a traditional crystal form or that the fluorite changes to a pastel purple under shortwave. Shown in midwave, shortwave, and longwave, and is about three or four inches tall.
