12.8 x 8.9 x 5.8 cm. A 3-dimensional, impressive, and very large specimen with "rice-grain" smithsonite crystalls (rare from the mine), perched atop the lovely pastel blue color that made the Kelly famous when it was in its heyday, for carving rough. The thickness of the rind is 1/2 inch in most places.
