Fluorite, Dolomite, Sphalerite
Elmwood Mine, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Cabinet, 10.2 x 7.8 x 4.5 cm

A druse of gray dolomite is host matrix for a nearly equant, gemmy, nearly colorless fluorite cube, measuring 3 cm across. It is complete but for a small amount of hard-t-see edge wear on the back of the upper edge - trivial in context but it is there. Above it is a a splendent, 4 cm, sphalerite crystal with gemmy highlights (cleaved or contacted on top but the display face is all crystallized). This is a very unusual specimen, for the fluorite style.
