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.
