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. Here is a special one. The piece was recovered from its host-rock in that heart-like shape! Half of the heart is lustrous blue and the other half is a dull gray with a little bit of white coatings on some areas. The "Heart" of the find!
