This thumbnail specimen consists of several round Smithsonite nodules resting on a stalactitic coronadite base. The nodules do not exceed 0.1" (2 mm) in diameter and are generally in good condition- only one appears to be damaged. All are colorless and dimly transparent, and all have the classic pearly "melted wax" luster of their species. The piece is glued into a plastic specimen box.
