Green fluorite from Madagascar made its debut at Tucson 2019, where 4 dealers were offering specimens from a new find at Mandronarivo. This is the first significant fluorite from Madagascar, and the color and quality are noteworthy. It is a very rich, dark shade of green, and the crystals are sharp, glassy, cubic formations. There is a thin phantom layer along the outside edges which is gem clear, and the inside layer is lighter in color due to bubble inclusions. The luster on this piece is bright and shiny, and the fluorite is perched on a smoky quartz and feldspar matrix. Fluoresces electric blue under LW UV light.
