A sharp specimen with a double-ball of sharp, intergrown Smithsonite crystals. Some of the crystals reach 1 cm on edge, although none are fully exposed. The color is an attractive peach-like color; a mix of yellow and pink and gold, perhaps indicative of traces of Cadmium in the Smithsonite. A good, representative piece with the Smithsonites completely covering the knob of matrix, and somewhat unusual color palette. Complete all round, 360!
