One of the most impressive Hemimorphite specimens that I have come across, this specimem is made up of almost half of the mineral by weight. It occurs in the form of a very thick crust that is pale blue in coloration. It shows much breakage along its edges and considerable damage to the top of the crust, but has a large area of undamaged surface with a beatiful sparkly sheen. It is translucent and its compact, radial habit shows well in many parts of the crust's edge. The base rock is made up of a combination of quartz and a powdery red substance that I can't identify. Even with the substantial damage that it has, this specimen is exceedingly pretty, and represents a quality of Hemimorphite that I have rarely seen.
