Sharp, translucent, pale-pink, elongated scalenohedral crystal of Smithsonite, likely the cobaltoan variety. This 24 x 6 x 6 mm Smithsonite is nicel striated, and is in perfect condition. Ed Swoboda personally picked this piece in the 1960s and held it for over 30 years, when I purchased it in the early 1990s. In the original Ed Swoboda mount.
