A rare specimen of gemmy yellow Sphalerite from the Franklin Mining District in Sussex County, New Jersey, USA, of the variety known as “Golden Sphalerite”. Such specimens from Franklin are very seldom seen on the market. The translucent lemon-yellow crystal measures 1.4 cm across and is half embedded in white Dolomite matrix, the latter fluorescing dull white lemon in LWUV. The Smithsonite display several faces which vary in lustre from glassy to satin. A great and unusual miniature which will make a super addition to any Franklin-Sterling Hill collection.
