At least 20 thin, colorless Smithsonite crystals make up this specimen. They have good clarity but are heavily striated, so it is not easy to see through them. They do not exceed 1/4"(6 mm) in length and have a hexagonal prismatic form with a steep trigonal pyramidal termination. Though their forms may be slightly warped, I cannot see any damage except at the point where the specimen was separated from its native environment. There is a small but visible phenomenon that is quite bizarre; when viewed with a bright overhead light at the correct angle, a small spot of color will appear in one of the crystals- actually, I saw it in more than one, but only very faintly in the other. I imagine that it has something to do with the light being refracted by the strange striations along each crystal.
