Aragonite
Cabinet, 13.4 x 11.0 x 5.4 cm
Wenshan Mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
SOLD
A large specimen of aragonite from Wenshan, where the pretty blue hemimorphites come from - but these cupric aragonites get their color from the copper content. They look a lot like coral, and chemically, are very similar - but created by stalactitc deposition rather than deposition by tiny sea creatures.
