Hemimorphite, Willemite
Miniature, 7.5 x 5.5 x 3.2 cm
Potosi Mine (El Potosi Mine), Francisco Portillo, West Camp, Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
A very CHOICE and very RARE specimen from the Potosi Mine at Santa Eulalia, Mexico of lustrous transparent to translucent hemimorphite crystals to 3.2 cm aesthetically set on a crust of very sparkly botryoidal hematite-tinted willemite. A few trivially broken hemimorphite crystals, but basically near-pristine despite its age (this IS an old specimen at least 1960s if not much earlier) and I have not seen a piece with this combination for sale before. 7.5 x 5.5 x 3.2 cm
