A really excellent specimen of very well-developed tetrahedral Sphalerite crystals, all to about 1 cm along each axis and forming a domed hedgehog-like structure.  From the Madan Ore Field in the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria, a deposit famous for its very fine metal sulphides.  The crystal faces are lustrous and are speckled with sub-mm brassy-golden Chalcopyrite crystals.
