A large thumbnail of excellent and aesthetic Cobaltoan Smithsonite crystals forming a ball-like cluster around a tiny matrix of what appears to be Germanite, based on its colour, texture and patina. Individual Smithsonite crystals also have a near spherical habit averaging 1 cm in diameter. They are translucent bubble gum pink with a most attractive orange-yellow core, a combination of colours new to me in Tsumeb Smithsonite.
