Smithsonite Var. Cobaltian
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 6.2 x 5.4 cm
This is a very robust, 3-dimensional cluster of lustrous and translucent, intergrown crystals of pastel pink, cobaltian smithsonite, to 1.5 cm across. The crystals are "rounded" for lack of a better word, like discs almost. They have a very distinct appearance to them and this is a rare style for Tsumeb.
