ID: CC8748
A most pleasing specimen of mustardy-lime-green dodecahedral crystals of Cuprian Smithsonite to 2 mm richly coating a bed of micro-botryoidal tufts of acicular deep olive-green Malachite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia.  The Malachite almost completely covers a core of vein quartz and micro-tufts also overgrow, and are included in, many of the Smithsonite crystals.  The contrast between the two very different shades of green is most attractive, heightened by the reflective dodecahedron faces against the matt Malachite.  Occasional clusters of colourless Cerussite crystals to around 3 mm are scattered mainly over the underside of the specimen.
