Beautiful Specimen that Looks Like Smithsonite mixed in with an Unknown Mineral – Formerly in a Geologist’s Collection

This is a beautiful specimen of what appears to be aqua colored smithsonite crystals mixed with transparent crystals of some other unknown mineral. This specimen came to us from a former Geologist’s collection. Unfortunately the identification and location data was misplaced by the Geologist’s family. So we selling this piece as being uncertain of the type of mineral but think it is smithsonite… and coming from an unknown location. It is possible that this is from the Kelly mine, but we cannot confirm this.

This is an excellent display piece.

Smithsonite is the mineral form of zinc carbonate (ZnCO3). It is also known as zinc spar or turkey fat. smithsonite is a variably colored trigonal mineral which only rarely is found in well formed crystals. The typical habit is as earthy botryoidal masses.
