Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 6.9 x 5.4 cm
This is a superb Elmwood piece, primarily due to the extremely unusual transparency and razor sharpness of the crystals (for Elmwood). They have just a delicate hint of purple to them. The dark sphalerite provides a stunning backdrop for them, too.
