                                              SPHALERITE on DOLOMITE

The entire specimen measures 5.5 x 5 x 3.8 cm while the Sphalerite crystal measures 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.3 cm. As seen in the left image, there is some residual Sphalerite from crystals no longer present and this helps to keep the price reasonable.

Numerous, very highly lustrous Sphalerite crystals cover all sides of this 12 x 4.5 x 3 cm specimen. The Sphalerites are all in great condition and are most prominent on the side shown above, but are present on all sides.

#CL37    $84.00
