Be aware of fake hemimorphite that are made from aragonite!!! In many cases, people use colorless or grey aragonite and dyed them blue to make them resemble hemimorphite. The dyed aragonite has a smoother look to it than natural bule hemimorphite. If you suspect your item is an aragonite, place a few drops of common pool acid such as muratic or hydrochloric acid on the item. If it starts bubbling then you know your item is a chuck of aragonite.
Though a few places were chipped, the specimen still retains a beautiful rich hue though out. The nice bubbling looking blue crystal formations are in various sizes. The two longest length are 4.375 inches and 3.75 inches. It weights about 11.3 oz.
