The Xiefang Mine, Ruijin County, Jiangxi Province, China is famous for specimens of cubeoctahedral (they look like dodecahedral) purple FLUORITE perched on glittering white QUARTZ. These specimens have been around since around 2005, and in past have commanded budget-breaking prices. Now a new find has resulted in the prices coming down to more sensible levels. We picked up several really good pieces at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show from a Chinese dealer who was selling a large selection of very fine Chinese minerals she had brought over from China for the show (it is noteworthy how many women from China are mineral dealers, and how few men there are by comparison - just the opposite of the American, European, and Russian dealers).
