Smithsonite, Aurichalcite
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 3.9 x 2.8 cm
Kelly Mine, Magdalena District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA
Pretty, excellent Kelly-blue smithsonite botryoids cover the silicified limestone matrix on this fine specimen from the Kelly Mine. The botryoids have excellent luster and translucency and there is a layer of powder-blue aurichalcite beneath the smithsonite and on one end. Very interesting. Classic and desirable combination material from this noted locale.
