Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.2 x 2.5 cm
Dulong Sn-Zn deposit, Dulong ore field, Maguan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
A variety of wonderful blue hemimorphites have been coming from Wenshan over the past year. This fine, two-sided piece is very close to the "electric blue" ones that have been the most popular (though hard to get) of them. It is very lustrous - a smithsonite-like luster - and actually slightly translucent. The color in person is even more intense than the photos show.
