Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 6.9 x 4.5 cm
Kiura mine (Shin-Kiura mine; Kiura emery mine), Saeki city, Oita prefecture, Kyushu Region, Japan
SOLD
This is a very rare Japanese specimen. Pretty much anything from Japan is now very hard to obtain, even the more common Japanese "classics" such as rhodochrosite or stibnite. Hemimorphites are even less commonly seen. This is a shallow pocket of frosty crystals in a limonitic matrix.
