Collector's Piece: Aragonite on Matrix from Wenshan Mine
Dimension: 9.7cm x 6cm x 3.5cm
Locality: Wenshan Mine, Wenshan Co., Wenshan, Yunnan, China
An exhibition quality Aragonite specimen from the renowned Wenshan Mine. This may be the most facinating white Aragonite I have ever seen. It features a delicate network of Aragonite crystals resembling snow flakes, composing of thin, discoidal crystals stacked in a fashion that produced a sharp single column which apparently grew out of several converging columns. The Aragonite crystals are completely floating on a matrix in pale brown-yellow color, magnificent!
