    Malipo Co., Wenshan

    Obviously, a product of the material that came out in the 1990s, with surreal saturated blue coloration, this Hemimorphite is all about the intense hue. The organic texture and form of this specimen offers an amazing visual aesthetic with branches and twirls of the colorful mineral variety populated this "best of the best" example of the most electric natural blue Hemimorphites in the world. This cabinet specimen has extreme dimensionality as the strong color is completed all around the piece, which is easily visible across a room. This iconic relic of the early mineral exports from China was imported by the Rocksmiths and most recently resided in the Chet Lemanski Collection. Presented on a custom engraved acrylic base, this is a supremely visually stunning fine mineral specimen with a natural color that is truly unbelievable.
    Measurements: 6.69 x 6.69 x 5.51 inches (17.00 x 17.00 x 14.00 cm)

    Provenance: Ex. Chet Lemanksi Collection
