Wenshan Mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
Large Cabinet, 16.2 x 10.9 x 4.5 cm
A fine hemimorphite specimen from recent finds at Wenshan, China. Here is a big plate of intense robin's-egg color - this was always the prime color over past years for these Wenshan specimens. The recent "electric blue" ones are pretty extraordinary as well, but these are fine too, with a color very similar to Kelly Mine smithsonite (though with a sugary, sparkly luster) .
