SOLD Sphalerite on Quartz
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
Hunan, China
6.8 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $0

A striking, bright big Sphalerite is perfectly presented on a bed of druzy quartz. A dark reddish brown ball at first glance, with backlighting, this glows intense red. Excellent condition, the 3.3 CM diameter crystal cluster is mostly gemmy. This mine has been the source of many Sphalerites, but this is far, far better than most, and is excellent for the specie.
