Smithsonite on Willemite
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.4 x 2.8 cm
Berg Aukas, Grootfontein, Namibia
Ex. Charlie Key
Well formed rhombs of lustrous and translucent, ivory colored, smithsonite, to a relatively large 1.75 cm across, are perched on a matrix of willemite, in tan, drusy spheres. A lovely and aesthetic specimen of smithsonite. This is a superb display miniature specimen of exquisite balance. (NOT TSUMEB but included here because Charlie kept it anyhow for comparison and to complement his Tsumeb pieces)
