Veszelyite on Hemimorphite
Gejiu Ore Field, Gejiou ounty, Honghe Prefecture
10.2 x 7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
A large blue Hemimorphite in botryoidal form hosts dozens of brilliant blue Veszelyite crystals. Ex Shileds Flynn collection, a very esthetic presentation for this rare mineral. This comes from an important find in Yunnan province that made big news in 2006. The specimen has been sawn on the back/ underside but the display faces are natural in form. The Hemimorphite has a very three dimensional form, and this also has a range of blue hues that add to the relief.
