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 among a small number of specimens from this pocket that had this stalactite-like style and a pleasant pastel blue-green color with soft luster. Very nice form with only peripheral issues, damage-wise. A great European Classic smithsonite.
