Although Berg Aukas is better known for its descloizite specimens, it has produced good smithsonite as well. This cabinet specimen has excellent clusters of rhombohedral, light yellow smithsonite to about 1.5 cm. In excellent shape, with contacts on the periphery as shown. The white areas away from the edges are mostly a secondary growth of smithsonite. 7.6 x 7.5 x 4.9 cm.
