ID: CC19168
About six intergrown translucent, deep golden-tan Sphalerite crystals to 1.5 cm across sit on a flat plate of tightly packed medium grained grey sandstone.  The largest crystal measures approximately 1.5 x 1.4 x 0.7 cm and all crystals have a slightly greasy yet semi-reflective lustre.  A little creamy-white Baryte is also present.  This is a most unusual and attractive Sphalerite from the ancient Dzhezkazgan mining district in the Karaganda Region of Kazakhstan.
