"Amber" Calcite from Qinglong County, Qianxinan, Guizhou, China

Some new material started showing up on eBay. Not listed in the fluorescent mineral category and, as with many Chinese specimens, no locality was provided but trying to confirm that Qinglong County, Qianxinan, Guizhou, China is correct. But beautiful nonetheless. Will try to nail down the locale. Nicely phosphorescent, a greenish hue. Fluorescence basically the same under all wavelengths, LW shown.
