For sale is a rare herbertsmithite, from Nangaroo mine, W.Aust. Featuring crystals of dark green Herbertsmithite. There are abudant emerald green crystals scattered about both sides, many are in drusy groupls, but there are lots of individual ones. To quote Jason McCoy (Mineralman),Herbertsmithite has made headlines recently due to research that suggests it may even be a previously unknown state of matter. “Recent studies at MIT have investigated purified herbertsmithite in a study to determine if it is a new state of matter known as a string-net liquid (see also: string-net). Current research is incomplete, however compelling evidence has raised the possibility that it may be this previously unobserved state of matter.. Ex Jiri Just collection. Rare! This is an excellent size specimen, and the very last one we have, which we have held till last. Because of the widespread distribution of herbertsmithite on the specimen, this could easily be divided into quite a few smaller specimens.
