Smithsonite var. Cuprian Smithsonite
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Oshikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.9 x 3.3 x 2.9cm

A gorgeous, glittering, almost neon green example of "sugary Smithsonite" from one single and notable Cuprian Smithsonite pocket at Tsumeb some 40 years ago in the 1970's. The color is due to copper inclusions. This great miniature consists of a sculptural aggregate composed of numerous, 2 to 3mm, sugary textured balls that glisten with any incident light! This piece represents some of the BEST color, and specimens of this material are simply unavailable on the market today. Absolutely unlike any other green smithsonite. Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.
