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, cabinet-sized specimens, with fine bluish color and luster, with good relief. A fine and well-sized example. Please note that the areas that look like possible damage, actually are areas were the top layer is missing and we can see the also lustrous layer that is underneath the blue one.
