Description

This is one of the most important specimens, we are offering in this current auction. Altenberg is among the most important historic locations of smithsonite at all. The whole area (also the Belgium part) was affected by the zinc and lead mining industry. And this specimen comes from there and features yellow, botryoidal crystal clusters lined in a vug. The major crystals are perfect, just in the periphery there is less imperfection. It is among the best I ever saw from this classic locale. This is the possibillity to get an important piece in splendid condition.
