Blue Aragonite from Wenshan, Yunnan, China
Dimension: 8cm x 5cm x 7cm
Locality: Wenshan Mine, Wenshan Co., Wenshan, Yunnan, China
A beautiful cotton candy's blue aragonite mineral specimen (also called sodalite in China) came out from this locality in late 2018. It is a carbonate that contains the elements Ca, C and O. This variety of aragonite gets its natural blue color from trace amounts of copper. On a matrix of aggregate divergent growth of translucent, gemmy prismatic aragonite crystals. It reminds me of an iceberg! This is sure to brighten up any mineral collection.
