During the past decade, we have had a series of smithsonite finds of quite good quality. This piece comes from a new find that surpasses all previous ones and offers some fantastic Greek specimens. Some of those pieces even compete with some Kelly mine smithsonites. This is one of the top large specimens, museum-sized with beautiful relief and large botryoidal clusters. It has fine luster and a very pleasant pastel bluish to pastel purplish(on some areas) color. Contact us for more photos and/or video.
