A cluster of heavily-intergrown Hemimorphite blades makes up this large thumbnail specimen. These crystals are in excellent condition, showing no detectable damage, and have very good orthorhombic form, considering their intergrowth. All are colorless, translucent to dimly transparent, and show a pearly luster. A small amount of powdery limonite is attached to the cluster, which is hot-glued to an acrylic base.
