Hemimorphite - intense blue
Sa Duchessa Mine, Oridda Valley, Domusnovas, South Sardinia Province
Sardinia, Italy
4.2 x 2.7 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $180
new year 2021

A small but vivid blue Hemimorphite with a sparkling luster from the classic Sa Ducessa Mine. In fine condition save at the outer edge where this was removed the display side is perfect and undamaged. This is a fairly old specimen (over 25 years at minimum) and since the color is still excellent it seems to be fully color stable. The deeper blue grades to a lighter powder blue on some of the botryoids. Unlike the recent fake Hemimorphites from Mexico which were a darker blue this is full natural and a nice example from this famed locale.
