Hydrozincite on Smithsonite (Kelly Mine, New Mexico)
Kelly Mine, Magdalena, New Mexico. 80mm x 60mm x 40mm.
the Kelly mine started production in and closed in 1957. From what we understand the mine is still in production however only fr mineral specimens. This specific specimen has the Hydrozincite covering what is clearly Smithsonite. While the temptation has been there to remive this and expose the Smithsonite we felt it better to post the mineral as is. The old label comes with the specimen.
