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. This specimen features stand-up, transparent, sharp bladed crystals of hemimorphite in delightful, flower-like sprays. The crystals look white, but they are actually colorless, and the dark reddish brown limonite matrix provides a dramatic contrast that really makes the specimen "pop". There is no noticable damage to the pristine crystals on this highly aesthetic and very dramatic specimen.
