Antozonite on eBay


As many of you know, antozonite is a radioactive fluorite mineral and one of the only places on Earth where elemental fluorine occurs naturally. In my experience it does not come up for sale often, so I thought I would share this eBay listing.

Awesome! I was lucky enough to find a sample for sale a while back. Beautiful purple cubes.
I also read that when the crystals are broken, a smell of ozone can be detected (from F reacting with O). I would love to try this, but my sample is precious and small!
