Fluorite on Arsenopyrite from Huanggangliang Mine, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/a608a.jpg] Fluorite on Arsenopyrite from Huanggangliang Mine, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/a608b.jpg] Fluorite on Arsenopyrite from Huanggangliang Mine, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/a608c.jpg]

Transparent complete octahedron atop Arsenopyrite crystals. Front four faces are smooth with one back face having some natural etching and another with a small flat cleave. Overall very good for this material which was not abundant. The entire fron half is completely transparent, but it's hard to tell in the photos because the camera looks straight through the crystal to a few fluffly white inclusions near the back and to the etched back surface. Better in person!
