Smithsonite & Phosgenite

Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Wenshan, Yunnan Province, China (Peoples Republic)
Class: 
Crystals on Matrix
Size Range: 
Cabinet (10-18 cm)
Size: 
15.2 × 8.7 × 4.3 cm
Description

Large cadmium smithsonite from Wenshan China! Massive crystalline that enveloppe both sides of the specimen. Thickness of the smithsonite is about 1cm. Visible inside the matrix, which is most probably dry bone smithsonite, can be seen elongated and very well shaped phosgenite ( 1.20cm in size ) crystals especially in one cavity in the corner which I took pictures of. This small cavity reminds of ancient slags that we encounter in the lavrion area often with similar beautiful phosgenite! Very good quality and color overall and light glossy luster typical of smithonite botroids!
