The Jean Baptiste mine has produced these excellent, caramel-brown smithsonites as an encrustation pseudomorph after scalenohedral calcites. This is a very good example with fine luster and good crystallization. The smithsonite on this specimen has a more recent generation of white to colorless, translucent calcite on it.
