ID: CC15813
A striking specimen of cerise pink Cobaltoan Smithsonite, a true classic from the Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.  Gemmy to translucent, gently curved rhombic crystals of rich pink Cobaltoan Smithsonite measuring to 1.4 cm cover both sides of this miniature specimen, either side of a central, paper-thin layer of silver-grey matrix, with a metallic lustre, possibly fine granular Galena.  Many crystals take on a reddish tint forming a mottled patchwork of many shades of pink due to variations in transparency.  All crystals have an attractive lustre of brushed silk.  An excellent specimen for display accompanied with an M. Sussman Collection label.
