Sphalerite on Quartz

ID: CC5567

A pleasing arrangement of intergrown very lustrous black Sphalerite crystals aesthetically set off by the surrounding sparkling Quartz matrix. The Sphalerite crystals measure to 7mm on Quartz epimorphs of Fluorite crystals. The domed reverse side of the Quartz specimen is mostly covered by a sparkling druse of micro-crystals of gemmy orange-brown Sphalerite.
