One single and pearlescent, pale apricot Smithsonite crystal dominates this choice Tsumeb thumbnail specimen, displayed perfectly on a clear acrylic base still bearing its previous number, that of a famous Tsumeb collector.  This magnificent, ex-matrix, crystal measures 2.3 x 1.4 x 1.5 cm and is capped by three similar, yet much smaller crystals.  The Smithsonite is completely translucent and once back-lit, glows in shades of flesh-pink and delicate apricot and with an aesthetic pearly lustre grading to brushed satin.  A delightful large thumbnail Smithsonite.
