ID: CC15385
A superb specimen of highly modified rhombohedral Cobaltoan Smithsonite crystals which form smooth, curved crystals to over 2 cm in length.  The crystals envelop a core of massive, lead-grey Tennantite which also forms finely disseminated inclusions within the Smithsonite.  Due to the inclusion of cobalt and Tennantite, the Smithsonite crystals vary from greyish bubble gum pink to metallic gunmetal-grey.  All crystals are dusted with a secondary coating of glassy, colourless Smithsonite crystals of sub 0.5 mm.
