This is another eye-catching specimen of zincite. The crystals on this specimen are extremely small, and the growth of the crystal structure is similar to that of coral. A chalky white to yellow coating can be seen on the bottom and back of this specimen; perhaps this is the material these crystals were grown from. At any rate, it does not detract from the specimen proper-it might actually add to the beauty of this piece.
