This is an AMAZINGLY colored hemimorphite from a recent find in China. Specimens are very hard to get these days. Unfortunately, the great majority of specimens just do not have this color or coverage. What makes them special, obviously, is the intensity of color. Chinese hemimorphites have always been valued by collectors and even the Chinese, because they just have not come out in quantity. But this find is the first ever with amazing, silky botryoidal surface of this unbelievably deep color.
