Sphalerite

ID: CC2156

A sparkling specimen of lustrous faced gemmy to translucent crystals of Sphalerite from a singular find made in the period 1970-1979 by the mines including the mine form. Although it was not until 1979-80 that the late Richard W. Barstow made a fortuitous contact when in the area that specimens of Galena and Sphalerite came on to the market. Specimens from the find are now considered to be Irish classics. The specimen we have is a characteristic Pyritic granular matrix with crystals of light brown to yellow Sphalerite measuring to 0.5cm.
