Interesting piece with mostly brown and some green smithsonite that have grown around gypsum crystals (encrustation pseudomorphs). The cast of the smithsonite over the selenite crystals is very distinctive. Some calcite and gypsum are deposited on the smithsonite. The matrix is sawn. Nice and interesting, unusual specimen!
