Paradamite on Smithsonite
stock #21.1-506
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
8.8 x 6.7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $730
Fall 22

A blocky matrix hosts a well-crystallized patch of creamy Smithsonite crystals mixed with bright lemon-yellow and orange Paradamites. A choice and colorful specimen that shows this rare specie very well. Paradamite from Ojuela is considered to be the world’s best, it is a highly sought after uncommon specie. These crystals reach to 8MM in size and are in excellent condition, the Smithsonite adds a nice contrast. Matrix on this piece is a sold blocky type that is not the crumbly and fragile sort. This looks fine by naked eye and is amazing under magnification. The main crystallized area on the matrix is 5.5 CM across. A very good value for a cabinet sized Paradamite.
