Calcite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 3.4 x 2.1 cm
A 4.8 cm twinned and doubly terminated calcite crystal aesthetically set on sphalerite from the famous and now-closed Elmwood Mine. This glassy, classic light amber beauty is nearly pristine and are now much in demand. The very faintest of termination edge wear is noted, but is certainly not a detraction, as you can see.
