Item #10102 $ 400.00
Smithsonite
Choix, Sinaloa, Mexico

This is a very nice 11 x 10 x 5 cm specimen of smithsonite from Choix. Many botryoidal masses undulate across the matrix, which has a dynamic outline. I like the small amounts of matrix along the edges...it helps to frame the piece and show of the silky purple color of the smithsonite. The piece stands as shown or on the right side...your choice (see the pun? Choix and choice. Oh well...). No damage. This is much better than most pieces I have seen from here.
