Blue hemimorphites have always been valued by collectors and the Chinese dealers, because there have never been good quantities of them. But recently, we got a handful of specimens that gave a new definition to "blue" - a shockingly intense deep blue color, never seen before in these. The photo is very accurate as to color - you can see the incredibly rich deep turquoise color of the botryoidal surface here.
