We were very lucky during out March 2017 trip to South Africa to purchase a large collection of Orange River Fluorites from Riemvasmaak in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

This specimen has well formed crystals and is a remarkable size at nearly 5 pounds.

“The cause of the beautiful green colour is unknown, it may be related to associated radioactive or rare-earth species, samples where tested and yielded surprising results; isotopes in the rare-earth element lanthanide series; lanthanum, ytterbium, cerium, neodymium, samarium, europium, gadolinium and holmium were detected although amounts were not determined.” (Mindat.org)
