Item Description

A fine small cabinet specimen of hemimorphite from Wenshan, China. This is very close to the "electric blue" ones that have been the most valued and rare of all of them. It is very lustrous - a sparkling, wet, smithsonite-like luster - and actually slightly translucent. The color in person is even more intense than the photo shows! It is truly a knockout, seen from across a room for color.
