Cobaltoan Smithsonite on Tennantite

ID: CC1775

A liberal coating of light pink coloured Cobaltoan Smithsonite crystals covers some impressively large tetrahedral Tennantite crystals (to 3cm). The Smithsonite crystals are well formed, measuring to 4mm, and are translucent allowing the grey of the Tenanntite beneath to be seen through the pink crystals. Some of the Tennantite has altered over time to leave hollow cavities. A good condition specimen "reinforced" with a rich amount of Cobaltoan Smithsonite.
