The complex terrain and cave system of the famous Wenshan Mine host an amazing variety of fine mineral deposits.  This particular flower-like specimen has always been a favorite of mine, they started emerging in the market in around 2016 and this is one of the pieces I’d acquired in 2017.  It is beautifully balanced, complete all around, and aesthetic.  It has a great color and high luster.  Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
