ID: CC11261
A 10 x 7 x 7 mm translucent deep claret-red Sphalerite crystal sits at the front of a 2.0 x 1.5 cm Quartz and Calcite lined shallow vug in a cream and tan dolomitic matrix.  From the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic, the Sphalerite appears black with deep red patches, but seen close to is a uniform deep claret.  The crystal is complex, showing multiple faces and may be twinned but requires more detailed examination.  A terrific “ruby” Sphalerite from Příbram.
