CAC107- Smithsonite - Berg Aukas, Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia

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.

For more information about Berg Aukas, see the Mineralogical Record, Volume 28, No 2 - The Otavi Mountain Land Cu-Pb-Zn-V Deposits, Namibia by Bruce Cairncross.
