||HOLD Sphalerite (Exceptional large crystals) and Dolomite
Pelican Mine, Picher, Tri-State District, Ottawa County
Oklahoma, United States
10.9 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
An exceptional, well formed Sphalerite from a long gone classic locality. Big, textbook clustered crystals reach 3.6 CM and show elegant twinning. This is far better than most "good" specimens from Tri state, it is admittedly more expensive but a very good value for the price. While this is a "black, ugly" mineral the overall esthetics and luster on this one makes this an remarkable and desirable addition for any collection.
