Miniature, 4.6 x 4.6 x 3.3 cm
Malipo Mine, Wenshan Co., Yunnan Prov., China

This is a beautiful, three dimensional, botryoidal crust of lustrous and translucent, hemimorphite, layered over matrix. The color is a shockingly saturated and rich teal blue, in the top 1 percent of 1 percent from this locale. The specimen is sculptural and 3-dimensional, and just stands above most others, particularly in its size class. This is from the personal collection built by dealer Ken Roberts during his decades of travel to China. It is lustrous and translucent and just "special" compared to any other style from here, even more than the photos convey.
