Small Cabinet, 8.8 x 4.6 x 2.3 cm
Sardinia, Italy
Another classic, this one from the honored location of Sardinia, Italy. These mines have been around for hundreds of years and have produced some of the old world's best hemimorphite (often mistaken for smithsonite!). This specimen consists of a plate of boytroidal hemimorphite with nice soft blue color and a bright luster. One minor contact present on the specimen. One of the few chances someone might have to get some outstanding rare old world hemimorphites. Edna Doughty collection label included with piece. 8.8 x 4.6 x 2.3 cm
