The grainy, weathered, pale-brown host rock of this specimen contains several crusts of pink, botryoidal Smithsonite. A few of these crusts show damage in the form of scuffing, but most are in very good condtion, as they line protective crevices. The botryoidal formations do not generally exceed 3 mm in diameter, but have good form and the "melted wax" luster that one expects from this mineral. Most of the crusts are translucent, but the largest one shows dim transparence. There is actually quite a large amount of Smithsonite on this specimen- the more I examine it, the more I see.
