The Rush Creek District in Arkansas is famous for its golden yellow botryoidal crystals of smithsonite. This material was given the name "turkey fat" smithsonite by the miners, due to its resemblance to the fat on a turkey. The rich golden yellow color, translucence, and botryoidal form earn the piece its colorful name, and there is no damage.
