ID: CC15691

A somewhat unusual specimen of a heavy, thick crust of chocolate brown Goethite overgrowing clear rhombohedral crystals of Smithsonite. Despite this crust, the crystal habit of the Smithsonite is still very distinguishable, making this a lovely combination specimen from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia.
