Smithsonite - purple to pink
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
7.3 x 5.1 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new year 2021

Purple Smithsonte is very uncommon worldwide, the best source was this small deposit in Sinaloa that has not produced much of any quality for several years. This is an older specimen with a nice velvet sheen on a botryoidal surface that gives a rather wet looking luster. This Smithsonite grades in color from a darker purple to more pink areas with some nice color mottling. Choix Smithsonites are still much lower in cost than almost any other locale, they are an excellent value yet often equally attractive. The color is what sets this piece apart, a choice addition to any Smithsonite or Mexican suite.
