This is from the great finds at this locality in the late 1990s, of these gorgeous and silky, shimmering green smithsonite specimens. This piece has rounded "rice grain" crystals to 5 mm, stacked one upon the other to make a shimmering covering on the display face. Rarely seen for sale today. The white crystals on the backside are bright gemmy hemimorphites.
