Smithsonite -"sky blue"
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
8.3 x 4.8 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $260


The Choix locality at one time produced a rainbow of various colored Smithsonite. The "sky blue" was one of the more rare colors, while the green blue was the most common. The area is no longer being worked and these have become more prized in the past few years, yet are still far less expensive than most other localities. This is a vibrant and deeply colored example with very nice texture and luster, it is in excellent condition as well. I recently saw a polished cabochon of this material that looked just like a fine gem Silica, the color in person is similar. This will add a rich color to any cabinet or suite of Smithsonite.
