Smithsonite

ID: CC16129
A thumbnail plate of highly lustrous, barley sugar-orange rhombic Smithsonite crystals from the Tsumeb mine, one of the world’s most famous and loved mineral localities.  The sharp crystals are mainly transparent, becoming more translucent towards their centres.  Individual crystals can be seen to grade form a burnt lemon to shades of burnt orange within, so producing an overall barley sugar appearance.  The largest crystals measure 7 mm on edge.
