2CN44 Gibbsite

12.5x5.4x 2.8 cm
$395

When I first saw this, I was a bit confused-- pretty much all the Chinese gibbsite I had seen was that blue hemimorphite-looking stuff, and it came from Yunnan Prov.  I was in Hunan, in the center of mining country, and a couple of them were even associated with fluorite (which was definitely local).  A bit of research though and I figured out what they were.  This was the richest piece from the group, the color and botryoidal form almost make it look like an American wavellite.  Good unusual, material.
