Hemimorphite
Wenshan Mine, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
 
 
A zinc mine, that produces aragonite and, less commonly, hemimorphite of predominantly blue and white, and, more rarely, green colour. It is known for world class, deep blue hemimorphite specimens with a fine surface growth, resembling okenite. Up to now, only two lots of these specimens were found, one discovered in 1990/1991, the other in 1999.


Note: The name "Wenshan Mine" is probably a generic name, referring to one ore more undisclosed deposits in the area around Wenshan.
