Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 3.7 x 3.0 cm
Wenshan Mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
This is a stunning, truly sky-blue specimen with unusually good luster and relief. It is one of the bluest of blue of the new hemi's trickling out of this remote part of China. It almost looks fake, I fully admit. but there it is, and a lot of color for the buck too, compared to what a Kelly Mine smithsonite of similar aspect might bring 6 x 3.7 x 3 cm
