PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Smithsonite is a variably coloured trigonal mineral which only rarely is found in well-formed crystals. The typical habit is as earthy botryoidal masses. Smithsonite occurs as a secondary mineral in the weathering or oxidation zone of Zinc-bearing ore deposits. It sometimes occurs as replacement bodies in carbonate rocks and as such may constitute Zinc ore. Specimens do not come up very often and the recently discovery of a pocket in 2022 is a fantastic opportunity for collectors! We have for a couple of years been getting matrix Smithsonite from Congo which has been polished to perfection in South Africa. A fairly unique and rare item to add to any collectors cabinet, either natural or polished. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
