Smithsonite Var. Cobaltian
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 3.7 cm

Fine specimen of attractive pink Cobaltian Smithsonite crystals covering the inside of what looks like a cast. The luster on the crystals is excellent, and the Smithsonites are gemmy to translucent. The largest Smithsonite is 1.4 cm on edge, and it is a half-crystal emerging from the matrix. A very good example of this highly-prized Tsumeb variety.
