SOLD
A fine cupric aragonite specimen from recent finds at Wenshan, China, source of many fine hemimorphite specimens as well. They have the look of sea coral (and in fact are not chemically very different at all), though were formed stalactitically rather than by little sea animals. The color is a wonderful sky-blue, from the copper content.
