ID: CC14286
Tightly packed botryoidal druses of translucent light grey Smithsonite almost entirely obscure the top surface of a deep grey-black Coronadite matrix from the MMM mine at Broken Hill, Australia.  This magnificent specimen epitomises the world-class stature of Broken Hill Smithsonite and aptly displays its characteristic silky bright lustre.  The Broken Hill ore deposit is hosted within a long anticline, so many mines were required to exploit the rich ore along the line-of-lode.  The MMM mine is one of its most famous localities and this Smithsonite wonderfully representative.
