Amazingly enough, every Smithsonite in this update is unique and different from one another. I think that each piece is very attractive, and all of them would make for great additions to any Tsumeb collection. This particular specimen is comprised of hundreds of sharp, lustrous, gemmy Smithsonite crystals measuring up to 9 mm sitting on both sides of this excellent and virtually undamaged display specimen. The color of the crystals ranges from colorless to yellowish to reddish-orange depending upon the location of the crystal on the specimen and whether or not it has some inclusions. Valued at $900-$1200.
