Description: Oh, to have a microscope, as there is a whole lot going on with this specimen. The more I check it out, the more I find. It's comprised of matrix with a number of open "vugs". The matrix is predominately covered by lustrous, botryoidal, sparkly, dark candy apple green, smithsonite xls. Found amongst the smithsonite are bright white, to water clear calcite xls to 3mm. There are micro, emerald green, botryoidal malachite xls. There are "sprays" (green to colorless) of a fan shaped unidentified mineral. The are several butterscotch colored micro wulfenite xls. The more you look, the more you find. Good thing I rummaged through my mineral collection in preparation for this auction. I purchased this specimen during my very first trip to Tucson, many moons ago. Enjoy!
