Item Description

We have been trying to bring you a variety of the wonderful blue, botryoidal hemimorphites that have been coming from Wenshan over the past couple of years. This is very close to the "electric blue" ones that have been the most popular (though hard to get) of them. It is very lustrous - a smithsonite-like luster - and actually slightly translucent. The color in person is even more intense than the pics show. The sculptural, vuggy boxwork matrix filled with hemimorphite is striking.
