Description

Hemimorphite is not a rare mineral to find and we all know the very nice samples coming from Mexico, but it is not so easy to find significative samples from Iran. This one shows an aesthetic cluster of tabular intense blue lustrous crystals on a limonitic matrix. Crystals are well formed, lustrous and in very good conditions and give to the piece a rare elegance .
