Fluorite Octahedron, Riemvasmaak, Northern Cape, South Africa

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

These Octahedrons have been cleaved (cut) in South Africa from larger pieces of fluorite. 

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).

We have been collecting mineral specimens in Southern Africa since 2002. We focus on bringing a wide variety of unusual, beautiful and energetic minerals!

We are located in Toronto's west end at 300 New Toronto St. Unit 19, Etobicoke, Ontario M8V2E8.

You may visit the warehouse by appointment only during our hours of 10am-6pm Monday to Friday.
