Fluorite on Sphalerite
Gibraltar Mine, Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.1 x 2.9 cm
A 3-cm "jewel" of a crystal perched on sphalerite matrix! This crystal is gemmy, translucent to transparent with a few internal veils only (they look worse in the photos than in person, so I lowered the price a bit but really this should go for more...). Overall, this is one of the sharpest and most discrete crystals I have from the pocket, and its balanced placement on matrix makes it a very fine, but inexpensive, miniature of high quality.
