Item Description

We have been trying to bring you a variety of the wonderful blue hemimorphites that have been coming from Wenshan over the past couple of years. Supply is very spotty, some years up and some down. This is from a large purchase we made last year and has not been recently superceded. This striking CABINET specimen has one vuggy side with the very close to the "electric blue" botryoids that have been the most popular (though hard to get) of them. The other vuggy sides have powder-blue hemimorphite. It is very lustrous - a smithsonite-like luster - and actually slightly translucent. The color in person is even more intense than the pics show. Valued $900-1200
