Superb jet-black, highly lustrous Sphalerite crystals cover the entire length of a dark grey matrix coated in micro-crystals of Dolomite/Ankerite.  The Sphalerite crystals are large and blocky, typically to 1.5 cm wide and merge into each other to form a highly reflective metallic crystalline mass.  A terrific specimen.
