Pre Holiday 2017
A radiating ball like spray of blue hued Hemimorphite crystals from the famed Mina Ojuela. The individual sheaves reach 1.3 CM and are somewhat zoned, a hint of green copper secondaries are seen as well. Unlike most of the Hemimorphites from this locale, these are opaque crystals and the luster is subdued overall but have a sparkling secondary coating of smaller clear Hemi crystals. The display area in in fine condition but the back and underside have some damage or contacting. Some minor Goethite is also present as small spheres. Not typical at all, this is an odd yet pretty specimen.
