Smithsonite

ID: CC1632

A floater specimen of nail-head prismatic Smithsonite crystals to 10mm with orange coloured Dolomite. The Smithsonite is translucent and has a hint of yellow to its milky colouration - like light coloured butter - with a vitreous lustre to the prism faces. The Dolomite looks like it has a orange coloured staining to the small rhombohedral crystals but this colour contrasts well against the light colouration of the Smithsonite. The specimen reveals no contact marks.
