Smithsonite - blue green with
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
9.3 x 4.6 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
new year 2021

Excellent blue-green color Smithsonite with a wet look, shimmering luster. The botryoidal surface is host to several "eyes" which are holes with a white rim which adds an nice contrast. The remarkable deposit at Choix is not producing at this time, but when it was active the Smithsonites were plentiful on the market. Many colors and forms were found making this a world class locale, often compared with the Kelly Mine in the USA. This piece has the eyes that were famed at the Kelly Mine and the color is comparable too, but as a Mexican specimen this is less costly and a great value for a pretty blue-green cabinet sized Smithsonite..
