A bed of glistening oil black coloured Smithsonite crystals on a matrix of Chalcocite. The black to smoky crystals display varying degrees of translucency, many translucent, and have an unusually bright lustre for this colour type. Crystals are quite large - individually to 9mm. Excellent condition - even the crystals on the periphery.
