ID: CC17497
A spectacular, showy Calcite on Sphalerite from Elmwood mine at Carthage, Tennessee, USA.  Two principle scalenohedral Calcite crystals, of approximately 5 x 3.5 cm by 8.5 cm tall, merge to form one spectacular translucent smoky-tan crystal.  This sits on a rugged thick bed of metallic, highly lustrous Sphalerite crystals of up to 3 x 2 x 1 cm; jet black in appearance, but actually golden-ruby-orange-red which manifests as bright orange-red flashes at crystal edges.  An excellent Elmwood Calcite and Sphalerite, very fit for display.
