EB37AL4: Group of cubic Fluorite crystals with edges bevelled by the rhombododecahedron, with an unusual habit for the species due to the balanced growth of these isometric forms, polycrystalline and with deep hoppers and smooth rhombododecahedral faces, but with pronounced curvatures on faces and edges. The color is very deep and vivid, between indigo and navy blue. On Quartz matrix. Totally different from other Huanggang specimens.
