ID: CC10313

Excellent individual, complex lustrous black Sphalerite crystals to 1.5 cm are scattered over an elongated mound of glassy milky Quartz crystals and glossy cream saddle-shaped crystals of Dolomite that cover an altered limestone matrix.  Patchy overgrowths of more earthy, orange-tan Dolomite crystals give additional contrast to this high-quality specimen of the more common minerals from the Alston Moor mining district of east Cumbria, in northern England.
