I love this specimen. Firstly it is a pseudomorph after gypsum! The holes you see are not damage, just the empty space of naturally dissolved crystals of selenite! Apart from this, the smithsonite itself is lovely with good luster and the best of all: it has more than 5 color tones ! The colors found on it are blue, green, yellow, brown, white and some variations of them. It is also quite large!
