Smithsonite
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
8.7 x 4.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $220


Choice stalactitic Smithsonite "fingers" with good wet looking luster. From Touissit, which some is best known for its fine Lead and Copper minerals, but this locale also produced some world class Smithsonite. The matrix of this piece is a mix of Galena, Cerussite and Smithsonite so the whole piece is quite heavy. The display side of this piece is composed of hundreds of Smithsonite crystals that have rounded faces and blend together in a botryoidal form. There is some periphery damage where this was removed but overall the condition is very good.
