Smithsonite
San Antonio Mine, Santa Eulalia, Aquiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
9.5 x 7.4 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $1850
new year 2021

A superb Smithsonite from the San Antonio Mine at Santa Eulalia, Mexico. An older specimen that ranks among the best for the locality. This could easily be mistaken for a fine Kelly Mine Smithsonite as the vivid color and silky chatoyance on the Smithsonite is a perfect match. The only clear differences from a Kelly piece is the matrix which on this specimen is mixture of Gossan with blebs of Smithsonite. It is also far less expensive than usual for a Kelly of this quality. Simply beautiful and even better in person, the luster and deep color are exceptional from this locale. A great addition to any Mexican collection or Smithsonite suite.
