Smithsonite (Cuprian)
Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 5.2 x 2.8 cm
79 Mine (79th Mine; Seventy-Nine Mine; Seventy-Nine property; McHur prospect), Chilito, Hayden area, Banner District, Dripping Spring Mts, Gila Co., Arizona, USA

A fine, 3-dimensional matrix specimen with an unusually choice and thick layer of green (cuprian) smithsonite atop. Like many from this new find, it exhibits two-tone coloration of both apple-green and darker-green smithsonite. The play of the colors in reflecting light makes them most unusual, and I have not seen green smithsonite before which exhibits this color play on the same piece. this specimen has very robust, large, botryoidal smithsonite at its peak.
