A gorgeous small miniature of bubble gum pink Cobaltoan Smithsonite intermixed with a sooty black sulphide-rich matrix. The Smithsonite forms jelly-like gelatinous globular clusters which include zones of clear, colourless Smithsonite. The glassy lustre, translucent quality and contrast between the bright pink Smithsonite and black matrix make this a delightful example of this most attractive species.
