Kelly Mine, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA

minID: 381-EYR
This specimen exhibits exactly what Kelly Mine Smithsonites are famous for - rich turquoise blue colour and bright chatoyant lustre that shimmers over the botryoidal form. The colour is just how you would image the sea looks from a tropical island, translucent with frothy peaks. The Smithsonite forms a thick layer to 1.5cm on matrix. Beautiful.
