ID: CC16064
A most attractive small cabinet specimen of bright lustrous glassy Smithsonite forming gently curved crystals of up to 0.7 cm on edge and covering a dark grey to black matrix of vuggy dolomite mixed with dark sulphides. The Smithsonite crystals are piled up one on top of each other and have a brilliant lustre with the effect of making a relatively dark coloured specimen twinkle and shine.
