From the famous Tsumeb mine, this piece really stands out because of its unique bright pink color, often referred to as “bubblegum” Smithsonite. The botryoidal from is a result of the now removed underlying matrix, and the sparkly luster is from the micro stair-stepped crystal growth presenting countless reflective surfaces. Beautiful, colorful and aesthetic, in excellent condition.
