Catalogue number #1900


Laochang Mine, Gejiu Co., Yunnan Province, China

Size 3.3x2.7x2.2cm


Dozens of sharp, well formed sub-mm veszelyite crystals line vugs covering much of the front of the specimen. The crystals are transparent with a gorgeous deep blue colour. There are small contacted areas around the margins of the vugs but the specimen is mostly in pristine condition. Found in 2017, an extension of the 2016 but the veszelyite forms sharper crystals and is less associated with hemmimorphite. An excellent specimen compared to the majority from this location.
