Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.6 x 1.8 cm

An exceptional and lovely specimen of beautiful lustrous robin's-egg blue Hemimorphite, overlaying a layer of vitreous deep blue Veszelyite. The Veszelyite is notable in its own right, but to have it in such an aesthetic combination with the Hemimorphite is quite remarkable. Small find of a few years ago. Ex. Charlie Key.
