Okorusu Mine, Otjiwarongo District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia

Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Fluorite
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Crystals on matrix
Origin (Region/ City): Okorusu Mine, Otjiwarongo District
Origin (Country): Namibia

Dimensions: 6.5 x 4.3 x 3.2 cm
Weight: 86 g

An amazing allure of deep to pale blues adorn the cores and zones of these Fluorite cubic crystals from the famous and coveted locality of the Okorusu Mine. This piece comes from the early finds in the Okorusu Mine during the height of its production, which has since been terminated in 2014. Among the various colours produced, the fiery reds and the pristine deep blues were among the rarest and most coveted. Presented here is a piece of that very highly coveted blue fluorite cluster. Both a rich piece of mining history, and a signature piece of the locality!

    Exemplaire de fluorine très bas en qualité, vert pâle et les cristaux mal définis avec 3 pointes émoussées. On pouvait s'attendre à mieux avec
    une fluorine en provenance d'Afrique du Sud. WARNING !

    Dear Sir/Mdm,

    Firstly, I apologize for the displeasure you have had with the mineral we had sent. It was not our intention to deceive or otherwise. We are mineral collectors just like you. While it is unfortunate that the quality was not up to your standards, we stand by our belief that we had fairly represent this piece. The pictures and photographs we had put up had not been edited in any way, and the blemishes, if any would be shown rather than hidden in our photographs. The fluorite in question does indeed come from South Africa in the Riemvasmaak as we had personally obtained them during a trip over there.

    While we do understand your unhappiness, we find that the Warning as unwarranted and unnecessary.

    While your experience was unfortunate, it is definitely not normal and we would have appreciated a personal message to which we may solve any issue. Regardless, wish you only the best and a very blessed year to come!

    -JC Minerals.

    Hi, I understand you are unhappy about the size of the specimen.

    However, I had stated in the description its size. It was also on the title and that clearly stated its size as well.

    Unfortunately, your negative feedback was uncalled for without first reaching out to us for clarification about the size, of which it was clearly stated everywhere, or your displeasure.

    Regards,
    JC Minerals

    Salut, je comprends que vous n'êtes pas satisfait de la taille de l'échantillon.

    Cependant, j'avais indiqué dans la description sa taille. C'était aussi sur le titre et cela indiquait clairement sa taille.

    Malheureusement, vos commentaires négatifs ont été déplacés sans d'abord nous contacter pour obtenir des éclaircissements sur la taille, dont il a été clairement indiqué partout, ou votre mécontentement.

    Cordialement,
    JC Minerals
