Hemimorphite - old classic Mexican
stock #21.1-555
Santa Eulalia, Aquiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.8 x 5.4 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400


A killer Hemimorphite from the late 1960's vintage find with unusually large phantom crystals. In excellent, undamaged condition, even the tiny crystals seem to be perfect, glassy and sharply terminated. The largest crystal spray is over 4.9 CM tall and is well-isolated. The main crystals have a slightly yellow color at the top, the body is white and the base has a dark brown to black phantom. Looks fine from any orientation, this is totally unlike the vast majority of Mexican Hemimorphite. In person the luster is brighter than the photos show, a real killer, the more recent finds from Santa Eulalia and and Mina Ojuela are very different, this sort is almost never available. Outstanding for the major crystals of Hemimophite.
