ID: CC7834
Rounded crystals of dark cherry red-brown Zincite protrude from a creamy Calcite matrix pervaded with metallic black crystals of Franklinite.  This choice small cabinet specimen is from the Franklin Mining District in Sussex County, New Jersey and has a small A. E. Foote (Philadelphia) label affixed to the specimen’s base.  The Zincite hemispheres measure to almost 3.5 cm across their longest dimension and the Franklinite crystals tend to form rounded, slightly modified octahedral crystals.  Under LWUV the Calcite fluoresces pale red while under SWUV it is a brighter orange-red with a few tiny patches of fluorescing green Willemite visible.
