Description:Attractive, rich green, velvety, radial groups of Smithsonite on matrix, creating an eye-catching overall specimen. It's a wonderful color due to the copper content, as opposed to many of the less desirable darker and "dingy" green Smithsonites from this locality. If you're an Arizona collector, or a Smithsonite collector, don't pass this one up, as it is a worthwhile Smithsonite for what it is. Mined in the 1990s. Valued in the inventory at $2,000. The piece comes with a FREE custom lucite base!
