Collector’s Piece: Blue Aragonite on Matrix from Wenshan Mine, China
Dimension: 10.3cm x 7cm x 4.1cm
Locality: Wenshan Mine, Wenshan City, Wenshan, Yunnan, China
A sculptural arrangement of shimmering blue Aragonite crystals that have emplaced on a brown matrix. Some of the crystals have formed into what is called the Flos Ferri which display coral-like branches, so beautiful! Mounds and crusts with a pearly luster of pastel blue to light blue Aragonite crystals aesthetically formed on the matrix resembling “iceburgs”, they are deposition minerals of hot, mineral-rich springs located in the complex Wenshan Mine in China. An attractive piece that is quite representative of the locality and species from the 2018-2019’s find. Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
