A huge and impressive Lavrion smithsonite with large green botryoidal formations! Pieces like this usually end up to museums or are immediately kept secret in local collectors' homes. I managed to acquire this a few years ago. There are some little holes on some areas which are probably the empty space left from etching aragonite/calcite off the specimen.
