Description

Many collectors do not know that Touissit has now and then turned out a trickle of really pretty smithsonites. They are almost always microcrystalline and botryoidal in form - but this one has distinct crystals with glassy luster with a second generation of more opaque crystals. The color, however, is the familiar pretty green color that is characteristic of this locale.
