This handsome Smithsonite specimen is loaded with several sharp, lustrous, gemmy, light yellow color rhombohedra measuring up to 1.7 cm which are curled around the matrix. The piece displays wonderfully without the aid of a base or clay and truly is a very good miniature of this material. Great quality and aesthetics for a very good price.
