Item Description

A beautiful stalactitic-growth of tan Smithsonite from Tsumeb with an interesting "snake" or "worm" like shape. Smithsonite from Tsumeb is one of the most classic species from what is arguably the greatest locality in the history of mineral collecting. This one is certainly unique, and would make a great addition to a Tsumeb suite, a Smithsonite suite, or collection of unusual shaped mineral specimens. Enjoy!
