Item Description

A beautiful bright green Cuprian Smithsonite from Tsumeb featuring dozens upon dozens of gemmy, sharp, lustrous crystals on a contrasting matrix. The crystals themselves are not especially large, but they have great luster and a very eye-catching color. Smithsonite from Tsumeb is one of the most classic species from what is arguably the greatest locality in the history of minerals. Enjoy!
