ID: CC10313
Excellent individual, complex, lustrous black Sphalerite crystals to 1.5 cm are scattered over an elongated mound of milky Quartz crystals with a bright glassy lustre and glossy cream saddle-shaped Dolomite crystals covering an altered limestone matrix.  Patchy overgrowths of more earthy, orange-tan Dolomite crystals give additional contrast to this high-quality specimen of the more common minerals from the Alston Moor mining district of east Cumbria, in northern England.  This cabinet specimen is accompanied with a previous German collector’s label and an ex. Department of Mineralogy, British Museum (Natural History) label (BM36006), obtained by the museum in 1864.
