ID: CC14581
A fine small cabinet specimen of nicely crystalized, bubble gum pink Cobaltoan Smithsonite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia.  The cobalt-bearing Smithsonite crystals are translucent with a fine glassy to slightly waxy lustre.  The Smithsonite completely covers a wide-based, triangular display face masking a light grey and white granular Calcite-Quartz matrix.  Current nomenclature appears to be phasing out the term Cobaltoan, replaced by the term cobalt-bearing instead.
