Smithsonite

ID: CC1573

A bizarre yet beautiful Smithsonite example with well formed prismatic crystals with snow-white growth phantom and colourless water-clear outer zone. The crystals also have pink coloured cores above the metallic sulphide matrix, and beneath the white phantom leading to a pale pink showing through when light is applied to the side of the specimen. A great condition and highly lustrous example displaying rare colouration and zonation.
