A cluster of lustrous, translucent hemimorphite blades, somewhat thicker than typical for the species from this locality. Brown inclusions in many of the blades adds interest. Individual crystals reach about 1.7 cm in length. A very few incomplete crystals are noted around the edges but overall the specimen is in excellent condition. Can be displayed either vertically or horizontally without needing additional support. A classic Ojuela Mine specimen.
