Wenshan Mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
Large Cabinet, 23.4 x 16.4 x 5.7 cm
A huge plate of intense blue botryoidal hemimorphite from China that is prized not only by collectors here, but also by the Chinese dealers themselves, because it does not come out in volume. The ones that have this deep, intense turquoise color are valued most highly of all. The vast majority are of a lighter color and a LOT smaller.
