Calcite Crystals on Fluorite - Mongolia

Had a great time at Tucson and found lots of new material. This was one of my favorite finds - Calcite crystals on fluorite crystals - shown LW, SW, and white light. The calcite is very phosphorescent and offers a striking contrast to the bright blue fluorite. This is apparently a new discovery out of China.
