ID: CC10390
A striking combination of black Sphalerite partly overgrown with excellent rosettes of transparent to milky-white Calcite, from the Herja mine in Maramureș County, Romania. The iron-rich Sphalerite forms radiating acicular crystals sprays to about 1.5 cm in the base, which manifests on the sides of the specimen as equant triangular terminations. A most appealing arrangement of Sphalerite and Calcite from Romania.
