Here's a very showy specimen of HEMIMORPHITE, featuring flower-like crystal sprays of translucent crystals sitting up on a reddish-brown limonite matrix. For the last few years, hemimorphite from Santa Eulalia has been plentiful, filling shelf after shelf in the wholesale mineral dealer's displays. There are lots and lots of low to medium quality specimens available, but occasionally a really exciting specimen like this one will turn up, making the hunt worth the time and effort. These specimens were mined at Mina La Ojuela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico, and come from the 2008-9 discovery of hemimorphite, the best in years, which has established a new standard for this splendid mineral. I picked this piece out at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show from one of our wholesale suppliers from Mexico, who had purchased probably the best pieces from this new find.
