Description

Here is one of my favorite pieces from the 2014 find in the Hilarion mine. This piece has it all; it combines the gorgeous, sparkling, gemmy blue adamite with the translucent, boryoidal smithsonite and spiky crystals of aragonite. The piece is well balanced and very aesthetic, offering a beautiful display.
