Fine and lustrous crystals of pink Smithsonite. Some of the crystals have a grey/black coloration right along the very edges - people say this style looks as if a blow torch was passed over them.Good color and undamaged.

Super bright pink crystals of Cobaltian Calcite from the big find of perhaps 10 years ago. This one stands out for a variety of reasons including the well separated crystals that revael the pyrite underneath, the 3-dimensional nature of the matrix which is much more interesting than typical flat pieces, great color, and the color contrast between the Calcite and pyrite.
