Calcite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 3.7 x 3.7 cm
A classic, beautiful, doubly terminated, golden-amber calcite crystal set on a small cluster of gemmy, ruby-jack sphalerite crystals from the Elmwood Mine of Tennessee. The form, high luster and translucency make this a textbook Elmwood calcite. Both terminations are extremely gemmy and the multiple terminations on one end are fascinating.
