A unique cuprian copper bearing smithsonite from the 79 Mine. This crystal a has botryoidal bright apple green crystal structure and an unusually gemmy internal clarity. The luster is high which makes the complexity of its crystal structure all the more aesthetic. The 79 Mine was mined for metal until the early 1990s, very few of the distinctive green smithsonites were produced making this a rare finding for sale.
