ID: CC21854
Silky, rice grain or ant egg crystals of translucent light blue-green Smithsonite crystals richly overgrow over folded stalagmites of intense turquoise-blue Aurichalcite from the famous Kelly mine in Socorro County, New Mexico, USA. The Smithsonite forms as 1 to 2 mm botryoidal spherules across the stalagmite surfaces and where not beneath Smithsonite has a velvet-like texture. This gorgeous combination produces a most aesthetic and charming good size miniature. This comes with a Simon Harrison stock label and two previous collection labels.
