Veszelyite is a rare phosphate and this beautiful, multi-hued blue specimen of botryoidal hemimorphite is richly sprinkled with sharp, dark blue veszelyite crystals. The hemimorphite ranges from powder-blue to cobalt-blue and the isolated, powder-blue botryoid on the cobalt-blue is indeed, striking. These were very popular at the 2008 Munich Show.
