Simply one of the most far-out specimens of crystallized zincite we have ever seen! Super lustrous and sharp crystals in an unbelievable array of colors spread across a bed of crystalline matrix. White, purple, yellow and golden crystals are seen here- a real feast for the eyes in person. Fact: Zincite was the mineral that was used as the source for the zinc used in the United States standard weights and measures! This specimen was sourced from a zinc smelter in Poland- a collection-grade byproduct- a wonder of the modern age! This rare mineral is only found in one place in nature, and never so thoroughly crystallized.
