ID: CC19675
Black, equant Sphalerite crystals of up to 8 mm almost entirely cover a triangular shaped platy matrix of massive Sphalerite, with possible Hematite and earthy brick-red Hematite staining on the base.  Although the majority of the Sphalerite is black, some crystal faces are translucent carmine-red with even the very occasional translucent orange crystal, albeit being sub-mm.  Such well defined crystals of this deep red colour are very uncommon from Příbram.  Between the Sphalerite crystals are tiny, sub-2 mm terminated Quartz crystals, often stained orange-red.
