SPHALERITE1 - Sphalerite on Quartz
$ 195.00 (=~ £ 157.47)
Shuikoushan Lead/Zinc Mine, Chaling, Hunan Province, China
cabinet - 11.5 x 8 x 6 cm

Two very large Sphalerite crystals are pleasantly perched on a bed of clear Quartz crystals. On top of the Sphalerites are water clear Drusy Quartz crystal clusters. This piece is aesthetic, especially in its contrast. The dark orangey Sphalerites vs. the white/clear quartz. The Sphalerites are relatively rounded, vs. the Quartz pointiness. And finally the tiny, fine druzy clear Quartz contrasts the larger cluster of points. It's in good condition overall. There's a minor blemish on the far right side of the lower Sphalerite crystal. Comes with a 1.25 inch three-prong acrylic stand.
