Cuprian Smithsonite

ID: CC1659

Pretty pastel light green Cuprian Smithsonite crystals form a covering over a Calcite/Duftite matrix. The Smithsonite crystals are translucent and lustrous, well formed with slightly multi-stepping crystal growth. The largest crystal is 3mm. A single Cerussite crystal is present measuring 4mm. The Smithsonite has formed on a translucent white band of Calcite, which has in turn been deposited on yellowish green Duftite over the rest of the matrix.
