The El Refugio mine in Choix, Mexico is a classic locale for smithsonite of various colors. While perhaps better-known for it's pink smithsonite, this mien has also produced vibrant blue smithsonite that rivals that of the famous Kelly mine in New Mexico. This specimen features two generations of smithsonite, a "base" of bright blue smithsonite, and an aesthetic overgrowth of brownish-white smithsonite. A classic older Mexica specimen from the Proctor Family Trust Collection.
