Hemimorphite
stock #18-AX-19-217
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
10.1 x 7.7 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Late Summer 2018

Two generations of well-formed Hemimophite crystals on a gossan matrix. The smaller crystals are colorless, glass clear and very lustrous. The larger are a milky white with a hint of reddish included Hematite. Free standing, these larger crystals reach 2.5 CM. A very three-dimensional matrix and with several excellent angles for display, this is an older Mina Ojuela specimen that is not like material from later finds. The early finds are highly respected as perhaps the best prismatic crystals of the specie ever found. A modern Mexican classic that is still affordable.
Hemimorphite -radiating sheaf habit crystals
stock #17.1-884
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.8 x 4.6 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
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.
Hemimorphite- Radiating blue crystals
stock #17.1-AX-11-036
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.1 x 5.9 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $850


A starburst of glassy Hemimorphite crystals with the extra attraction of being a nice pale blue color. From 2015 finds in Mina Ojuela, this is an especially fine and esthetic specimen. Some of the best Hemimorphite ever found comes from this locale, but very little ever had this most desirable blue color. The individual prisms are up to 1.1 CM long and have a bright glassy luster. Choice and very rarely available in this quality.
Hemimorphite- Finger like growth
stock #16.1-628
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
Yunnan, China
4.8 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $475
Spring 2017

An exceptionally esthetic botryoidal growth of Hemimorphite with a rich blue green color. Looks a lot like a Smithsonite. This is in undamaged condition, has perfect wet-look luster and a coating of micro clear Hemimorphite crystals to add a little sparkle. Wenshan has become a world class producer of Hemimorphite but this habit is not at all typical, a very choice miniature.
Hemimorphite- blue botryoidal
stock #15.1-371
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
Yunnan, China
7.5 x 4.5 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $90
Spring 2017

A choice small cabinet specimen of blue Hemimorphite from Wenshan. Very nice sparkling luster and good blue color, this is similar to some older Mexican material. Sawn on the backside, the matrix also shows layered deposition and stacked vugs of Hemi. This is a very good piece from this current, prolific find. There are several lots of these on the market so the cost for a nice specimen is unusually low.
Hemimorphite with Malachite (Classic old locale)
stock #0044-JM-2296
Rezbanya, Baita Mining District, Nucet
Bihor, Romania
7.4 x 6.1 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
Post Tucson 2015

Brilliant lustrous blue color crystals on this very old, fine classic piece. Ex Lechner, (Austria), Schortmann, and John Marshall collection, the old labels have this in Hungary (now Romania) and was in the Lechner collection prior to 1903, but likely from much earlier in the 19th century. In fine condition with an electric color, there seems to be some Chrysocolla as well as Malachite under the Hemimorphite which helps the rich color. Excellent quality, fine provenance and eyecatching sparkling esthetics that is simply impossible to find today.
Hemimorphite
stock #ALEC-19-151
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
Yunnan, China
9 x 7 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $230


A rich and very colorful example of the Hemimorphite from the earliest find at Wenshan. The form and condition are excellent and the more recent finds did not have this habit. Nice blue-green Hemimorphites from classic locales can be very expensive but the better Chinese specimens are often more attractive with much less cost
Hemimorphite (unusual form, old mystery locale)
stock #AC-375
Cuvella Mine
Nevada, United States
6.4 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A very unusual, old specimen with a slender stalactitic form and mysterious provenance. The Schortmann's minerals label that comes with this specimen dates it to the early years of their world famous dealership, about 1940. At that time a $5.00 specimen was a very costly piece. This period was the beginning of their historic association with Ed Over and Arthur Montgomery. The locale listed is the Cuvella mine in Nevada, which is not a "known" location. Whats more, the form of this piece is not like any I have seen from any locale worldwide, much less Nevada. It is 360 degrees crystallized with a central hole, micros of Barite and zoned dark inclusions, it looks almost violet in some lighting. In excellent condition with no eye visible damage, an interesting and mysterious piece. The stock number is typical of pieces that they obtained from older institutional collections both in the US and in Europe, but the meaning of the code is lost. Whatever the locale this is a fine and interesting specimen!
