Thumbnail, 2.7 x 2.5 x 2.3 cm
This 1.8 cm sphere of translucent, gray-blue Hemimorphite displays neatly on an ocherous limonite matrix pedestal. The luster is very good, and this looks quite like a fine Smithsonite. The contrast of color and texture is quite appealing. Material such as this is old and quite rare from this mine. Good Aesthetics!
