Dexing Ore Field, Dexing County, Shangrao Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
Dexing Ore Field is the largest porphyry copper mine in China with over 1.5 billion tons of ore produced at 0.43% copper. That being said, very few specimens have been retrieved from this large industrial area. This piece is a colorful example of hematite inclusions in white quartz giving a rich red coloration to the center crystals. These crystals are surrounded by white to clear crystals and rest on a green fluorite “matrix”. The result is a rare mixed piece with great color. There are some sheared quartz crystals and the fluorite is not well crystallized, but overall this piece has great aesthetics and is a great piece from a more rare locality.
