- Smithsonite Var. Cuprian
- Large Cabinet, 17.0 x 12.5 x 1.6 cm
- Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
What can you say about a 17 cm plate that is completely covered on one side by jillions of lustrous, mint green 1 mm Cuprian Smithsonites that look like fresh green snow? Outstanding! There is even a large number of Smithsonite crystals on the back. A very impressive, aesthetic specimen - and much better in person, even. Few such large examples of this size would have come out.
