Item Description

Click here for a video of this specimen!
Extracted from one of the most important (long closed) specimen mines in modern history, Tsumeb, this miniature cobaltoan smithsonite cluster features a dense assortment of sharp, soft pink crystals that wrap around the side of the specimen for a dynamic specimen from many angles. Smithsonites are some of the most prized species to come out of Tsumeb, which is saying a lot considering hundreds of species have been found there. The breadth of color, form, size, and shape is endless! On this very sharp and fine competitiion level miniature, the largest single crystal measures in at 1.1cm. They are elegantly displayed on a sparing matrix. Valued $1000
