Rich apple-green druses of sub-2 mm Smithsonite crystals cover a naturally etched  granular Quartz matrix impregnated with Calcite.  Colourless glassy Calcite crystals in small clusters sit between the Smithsonite together with sooty-black patches of micro-granular Goethite.  This specimen is from North mine at Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia, a mine discovered in 1883 and operated until 1993.  A lovely Smithsonite of a most attractive colour from this world-famous silver-lead-zinc mine.
