Wenshan Mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
Cabinet, 12.3 x 6.9 x 3.9 cm
Wenshan is known for its colorful blue hemimorphites and in fact they have always been prized (and priced pretty high) since they have never come out in volume. Look at this specimen from a unique NEW find - just incredible in terms of both the color and the luster! It is even slightly translucent, reminiscent of the apple-colored smithsonite from the 79 Mine in Hayden in many ways other than color. WOW!
