This is a rare form of Cuprian Smithsonite with small crystals of smithsonite forming larger balls up to 6mm in diameter. On the back are clusters of yellow-orange mimetite crystals up to 8mm long. We believe this is one of the specimens from a single pocket that was found in the late 1970's or early 1980's. The smithsonite crystals are in very good condition with almost no damage. On the front are areas where a few other mimetite crystals once grew, but broke off. The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
