Smithsonite

ID: CC2414

Several large spherical globules of Smithsonite are nestled in a dark grey Coronadite matrix accompanied by smaller tear drop shaped crystals. The Smithsonite is translucent, appearing pale yellow to bluish due to the grey matrix behind. The crystals have a velvety chatoyant lustre and the main globule is 38mm across. The Coronadite is botroyoidal to stalagitic on the rear of the specimen, and is coated on the front with tiny pointy 'dogtooth' scalenohedral Smithsonites to 3mm length. A weighty specimen and sizeable example of Smithsonite from the famous Australian location.
