Ex. Charlie Key

Intergrown, lustrous and translucent crystals of smoky-pink, smithsonite, to 1.0 cm across, are nestled in a curving vug on matrix. On close-up, note the sharp internal phantoms! very unusual, this. The color combo of the smoky phantoms inside pink cobaltian rich smithsonite is both unusual and very attractive. Aside from only the edge of the periphery, this piece is completely pristine. Again, the luster, and the waxy look of it, are very appealing and showy.
