Smithsonite-
stock #17.1-600
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
5 x 3.2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $330


Top color, a bright pink Smithsonite from an old find at Choix. This small prospect has been the source of some incredible Smithsonites with remarkable colors. This is a really intense "bubble gum" pink even more vivid in person. The delicate botryoidal form is quite three dimensional on this piece. No longer available the locality has become too dangerous for any mining, and in recent years very few good specimens were found as the locale is more or less played out. Great display impact for the size
Smithsonite -Purple
stock #17.1-598
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
4.3 x 3.4 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $260


A purple Smithsonite with distinct botryoidal structure and an elegant sculptural form. Purple is perhaps the rarest Smithsonite color and not known from many other localities. From the early finds by Benny Fenn this is a nice miniature that looks fine from either side. Sadly this locality is no longer working as it is quite dangerous at this time. In excellent condition as seen, a nice addition to any suite of Smithsonite or of Mexican minerals.
Smithsonite - muti colored multi layered
stock #17.1-607
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
6.8 x 5.6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Worldwide mix summer

A choice small cabinet Smithsonite made of purple and pink botryoidal layers over a green core. There is minimal matrix. From the now defunct Choix locale, this has a fine color and luster that is much better in person. In undamaged condition, these Smithsonites are no longer being found. A modern classic locale, better specimens like this really do stand out and are a good value.
Smithsonite
stock #18.1-103
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
4.3 x 3.8 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring update

Bright pink Smithsonite in a bubbly habit with no adhering matrix. Fine color and luster in an attractive shell-like cast structure. From the long known prospects at Choix, Simaloa, Mexico. Sadly this locality has had many problems and has stopped producing due to cartel violence. The bright colored Smithsonites from here are now highly regarded as fine specimens.
