Gemmy rich emerald-green fluorite octahedrons, to 15mm on edge, cover the matrix plate 75x70x25mm. This colourful two-generation fluorite is from a small 2016 find near Yiwu City, a very obscure locality in Zhejiang Province, China. Scattered secondary overgrowths of clusters of purplish-grey, frosted, stepped-growth cuboctahedrons add contrast. Some of the green octahedra have striking phantoms, particularly visible under a UV light. Rich blue fluorescence.
