Smithsonite on Serpierite With Olivenite

ID: CC1872

An early specimen from the upper oxidation zone of glistening blue coloured micro-crystals of Smithsonite on underlying paler blue crust of Serpierite. Needle crystals of Olivenite richly invest the rear and side of the specimen. The gorgeous contrast between the mineral colours make this a real beauty.
