ID: CC13587
A most pleasing silky, undulating carpet of sour-apple green Smithsonite completely hiding the underlying light grey andesitic matrix.  The Smithsonite forms a thick layer of intergrown mamillary crystals, all with a satin to silky lustre.  In transmitted light, the Smithsonite appears a tangy-lime green.  This specimen is from the famed 79 Mine in Gila County (formerly  Pinal County), Arizona, USA, a compact polymetallic orebody which produced metals such as silver, gold and antimony in addition to lead, copper and zinc.  This is a terrific specimen and of stunning colour from this most famous of Arizona localities.
