Cuprian Smithsonite

ID: CC1813

A specimen of featuring a drusy crust of green coloured Cuprian Smithsonite crystals coating a reddish coloured matrix. Occasionally the Cuprian Smithsonite forms larger prismatic crystals to 7mm displaying nail-head type terminations. The Smithsonite exhibits an interesting colour zonation, seen particularly well in the larger crystals with bands of translucent darker green between lighter silvery green areas.
