Smithsonite

ID: CC1622

An unusual specimen of Smithsonite with tiny translucent honey-coloured crystals almost completely coating a reddish-brown matrix. The matrix is a cast of a finger-like stalagite of unknown mineral. The Smithsonite crystals are sharp rhombohedrons 1-2mm in size with bright lustre that glitters as the specimen is turned. These unusual specimens of 'finger' casts after an unknown mineral came from a particular find in the mid 1970s, before the mine closed in 1978. A few minor bruises, but otherwise in good condition. The Smithsonite appears more reddish in the photographs than in person.
