||Sphalerite on amethyst
Commodore#5 Mine, Amethyst Vein, Creede District, Mineral County
Colorado, United States
8 x 6 CM (cabinet)
Very attractive, classic Colorado association with the main Sphalerite crystal of 2.9 CM size on a contrasting purple matrix. No damage, displays nicely, and the Sphalerites are translucent under strong light and are a deep yellow color.
