This is a very unusual smithsonite specimen. It consists of two intergrown crystals, the smallest of which appears cubic, but the largest (90% of the specimen) is hexagonal with a stepped (nearly rounded) pyramidal termination. Its luster is pearly, the crystal is brown and translucent, with some areas around the edge have some damage and the exposed crystal edges appear nearly transparent.
