This cabinet-sized piece consists of partial crust of synthesized, crystalline Zincite. The Zincite is in good condition, showing damage only at the edges of the crust, and appears to have good hexagonal prismatic form, though most of the larger crystals in the crust are covered with a thick druse of much smaller, heavily intergrown crystals. Its color is odd in that the base of the crust is violet, with some yellow material present on its underside, but fades to an orange color where the largest crystals are present- this color, in turn, fades to colorlessness where the thick druse begins. All of the material is transparent and clear to a degree, and possesses a bright pearly-to-vitreous luster.
