Smithsonite (Ex Chris Amo Coll.)

ID: 6393

Exceptional rhombohedral crystals of smithsonite with deep yellow centers and zoned lighter edges. The temptation is to label it cadmium, but I don’t believe that it is accurate since most Tsumeb smithsonites labeled “cadmium” are pure guesses by collectors and dealers. Wonderful color, zoning and luster on this one, not to mention good sized and well defined crystals.

Smithsonite (Ex. J. Schneider Coll.)

ID: 6201
Add to OrderNot checked

Very sharp rhombs of lustrous smithsonite intermixed with dark sulfides (probably tennantite and galena) and micro quartz crystals. The color of the crystals are a pale pink with yellow/tan zones, which is difficult to capture on camera. The crystals are in perfect condition and the unusually zoned coloration is much better appreciated in person. I would be tempted to call it cobaltoan, were it not for the yellowish zones.

A superb miniature consisting of lustrous orange-red crystals of spessartine completely coating a smoky quartz crystal. You will notice a small opening at the tip where the quartz shows through, and also at the base. Perfect 360 degree specimen and one of the most aesthetic pieces I have seen from there.
