Paris, France Layover

On display at the Musée de Minéralogie, a large fluorite specimen from Tarn, France. “This fluorite was initially of a more sustained blue, but too much exposure to light modified its original color. It is the ultraviolet rays of light that partially discolored this sample.” Of course it seemed ridiculous to spurn the more famous Parisian locales for the sake of visiting a gem and mineral museum, but I think I’ll just play the “jewelers are kind of weird” card on that. • #fluorite #minerals #rocksandminerals #mineralcollection #bluegem #geology #mineralogy #crystallove #crystal #nofilter #stonelover #jewelrydesigner #paris #iloveminerals #crystalobsession #museedemineralogie #iceberg #mineralsofig #cerulean #parismuseum #gemobsessed #crystals #crystalsofig #rawgemstone #rocklovers #💎
