Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 4.8 x 3.1 cm
Dulong Sn-Zn deposit, Dulong ore field, Maguan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
A variety of the wonderful blue hemimorphites that have been coming from Wenshan over the past couple of years. This 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. An excellent, sculptural, vuggy specimen.
