ID: CC12564
Semi-transparent, bright candy-pink Cobaltoan Smithsonite crystals to just over 1 cm completely cover the upper surface of a dark-grey mixed sulphide matrix.  The smaller crystals form gently curved perfect rhombohedrons with a silky lustre whereas the larger Cobaltoan Smithsonite crystals are more complex, with multiple-stacked distorted rhombohedrons, with a scalenohedral appearance.  A terrific Cobaltoan Smithsonite of good colour and occasional subtle colour zoning.
