Smithsonite Var. Cadmian
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 4.1 cm
Ex. Marshall Sussman

This is a superb miniature of lustrous and translucent, cadmium rich smithsonite exhibiting good luster and translucence along with a lovely burnt-yellow color. The specimen is highlighted by a highly unusual and elongated spear-like smithsonite crystal rising vertically, 2.5 cm above the other crystals. A competition quality miniature! Ex.
