ID: CC21945
Equant, dodecahedral crystals of Cuprian Smithsonite are richly scattered over a matrix of massive Calcite mixed with an unidentified light apple green copper arsenate, probably Duftite.  The Smithsonite forms gemmy pastel peppermint crystals of up to almost 4 mm diameter, mainly occurring as individual crystals scattered over a bed of opaque, snow white Calcite micro-crystals.  A few colourless and glassy Cerussite crystals sit in a small vug at on side.  A lovely miniature of Cuprian Smithsonite from Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.
