Veszelyite on Hemimorphite
Laochang, Gejiu, Yunnan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 5.2 x 4.3 cm

A beautiful contrast of sharp, intense blue veszelyite crystals perched on rolling carpets of saturated, turquoise-blue hemimorphite! Although such association was found in abundance at one time, few specimens featured discrete crystals like this, and had both species in good color and quality. Joe Budd Photos.
