SMQ12 Shattuckite
Anhui Prov., China
13.5x 4.9x 3.7 cm

I had posted these briefly ( a couple hours) before, then took them down to collect more information and to confirm that they were in fact Chinese. After speaking with a few people, the locality has been narrowed to somewhere around Anhui Province, in eastern China. These pieces come from a small find that was debuted at the Changsha Show in May, and I have only seen a few pieces floating around since. This is one of the best (and certainly largest) examples I have seen, and is composed of a carpet of bright blue, acicular crystals. I should also point out that it is not nearly as delicate as it looks.

An interesting specimen for a collector of Chinese minerals, and certainly something new and unusual from that country.
