This thumbnail specimen consists of a cluster of at least 20 rounded Smithsonite crystals. These crystals are quite small- the largest has a diameter of 0.4" (1.0 cm), and the rest are less than half that size. All appear to be in good condition, showing very little damage. Their trigonal form is rather warped and rounded, but one can still see definite edges and faces. Their color is pink and their luster is pearly, and all are transparent and dimly clear. They are partly embedded in what appears to be a galena base.
