Cabinet, 13.5 x 5.3 x 5.0 cm
Dulong Sn-Zn deposit, Dulong ore field, Maguan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
A variety of wonderful blue hemimorphite specimens have been coming from Wenshan over the past year or so. This two-sided, sculptural, cabinet specimen 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 photo shows.
