Smithsonite - multi-color
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
10.3 x 8.4 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


Rich color and a wet-looking luster in a sizable specimen from the "golden years" at Choix. The colors range from pink to light violet with some yellow zones as well. Choix produced a wide range of Smithsonite hues which are quite rare in the rest of the world. Sadly the locality is not workable any more but it was once prolific. The surface has the velvety chatoyance and distinct botryoidal form that makes these great specimens. This one also has a fair amount of Smithsonite on the back side though the front as seem is certainly the display side. Choice and better in person.
