From the noted collection of Wallace Gould Levison, purchased by him in 1893 from an even older collection obtained by HG Diserow, seemingly pre 1870. Classic translucent Smithsonite from Laurium with fine blue green color, sawn and lightly polished. A photocopy of Levisons handwritten catalog entry page for this specimen is supplied with the piece. Levison was an important Victorian era US collector, inventor (first patent for a movie camera, UV mineral systems etc.) and prolific author.
