Item Description

Here we have some excellent, gemmy Smithsonite rhombs up to 7 mm with sharp, well-defined faces and a lovely golden-bronze color on the exterior. You can see that the inside of the crystals is essentially white/colorless, producing a beautiful two-tone effect. The crystals are sitting on minor matrix, and most of them are essentially damage free.
