Sphalerite With Galena on Quartz

ID: CC5778

A bright cluster of three intergrown Sphalerite crystals sit atop the specimen from the Gyongyosorszi mining area in Hungary. Several more intergrown Sphalerite crystals are also to be seen on the Quartz matrix, with cubooctahedral Galena crystals measuring to 6mm. The Quartz crystal lined cavities appear to be epimorphic after 'Calcite' crystals.
