12.1 x 8.7 x 6.2 cm. Botryoidal, lustrous and translucent, sky blue to aquamarine blue, in rich masses composed of spheres to 3 mm across. This new find is possibly the world's best of species for intensity in coloration. Very pretty material. Very lightweight. From a new find that appeared at the Shanghai show in April 2012.
