Item Description

A beautiful multi-color Cuprian Smithsonite from Tsumeb that grades from a very vibrant blue-green hue into a golden-green/olive-green shade and ends with a golden-brown color on the other end. The crystals themselves are not especially large, but they have a gorgeous sugary sparkle and sit very well on a slab of Tennantite matrix. Valued at $1200-$1500.
