Mineral Specimen #4883 Hemimorphite (Calamine)
11 x 8.3 x 7.8 cm
Ex. A. E. Foote, 1895-1916
A relatively large specimen of Hemimorphite with an old Foote label attached to the bottom. The specimen is composed of radiating crystals which are white in color on the sides of the specimens and light yellow/tan in the interior where the terminations of the crystals are. The terminations have a glossy lsuter and the sides have a silky luster.
Flaws: Asmall number of the crystals are slightly damaged which does not affect the appearance of the specimen.
