When the new Veszelyite locality started producing, we sent a friend to investigate an we bought a number of the early pockets directly from the miners in the years just before Covid hit (5-6 years ago despite some people thinking it is somehow more "new" than that). This was one of the better AND larger specimens recovered, and went into my personal collection of Chinese minerals at the time. Dramatic, gorgeous, deeply colored crystal sprays to 1 and 1.2 cm stand out against a matrix of hemimorphite on textured, 3-dimensional matrix. This is a highly unusual specimen for size, richness, and the presentation on a 3-dimensional display matrix. Long in my collection, and only now parting with it because i kept a single large toenail sized crystal instead; and my own Chinese collection does not emphasize rare species so I have released a number of them to the market now.
