ID: CC18890
A delightful miniature of sour apple-green Cuprian Smithsonite crystals completely lining a shallow vug in a grey-cream brecciated Quartz-Dolomite matrix.  The Cuprian Smithsonite forms typical, curved rhombohedral glassy crystals of 2 to 3 mm on edge, semi-transparent and with a bright glassy lustre.  In the centre of the Smithsonite sits a singe well terminated, colourless tinged smoky-tan Cerussite crystal of similar dimensions.
