Henmilite on Olshanskyite (Ref: RG1079)

Fuka Mine, Bitchu-Cho, near Takahashi, Kawakama Co., Okayama Prefecture, Honshu, Japan
51mm x 50mm x 28mm
Many lustrous, rich royal-blue Henmilite crystals to 3 mm are perched on contrasting matrix of white Calcite with small pockets of clear Olshanskyite, from the type locality for both Henmilite and Olshanskyite. The Henmilite are euhedral, triclinic pinacoidal crystals. An unknown pale-blue earthy mineral is present on the Calcite and as a coating on some Henmilite crystals. A small patch of an unknown yellow mineral is also present. These specimens were found in 2004, and collecting thereafter is prohibited. This is a very richly covered specimen. If you don't have one of these, take advantage of this opportunity to get one. No damage.
