Yellow Fluorite! Check out this rare and lovely Yellow Fluorite specimen. A great chunky piece without any matrix that is completely flat on the underside. I’ve taken a photo indoors and two outdoors to try and show the actual colour of this piece; it is far-and-away best displayed with light shining through it. One for the collector of the rare and unusual. This specimen comes with a perspex stand.

Fluorite is a mineral with a veritable bouquet of brilliant colors. Fluorite is well known and prized for its glassy luster and rich variety of colors. The range of common colors for fluorite starting from the hallmark color purple, then blue, green, yellow, colorless, brown, pink, black and reddish orange is amazing and is only rivaled in color range by quartz. Intermediate pastels between the previously mentioned colors are also possible. It is easy to see why fluorite earns the reputation as “The Most Colorful Mineral in the World”.
