Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 7.0 x 5.6 cm
An fine combination specimen from the Elmwood Mine. Two gemmy and lustrous, intergrown, light purple fluorite cubes are perched on rubyjack sphalerite matrix. The larger cube is 4.5 x 4.4 cm and has glassy and gemmy corners, typical of many Elmwood fluorites. The rest of the faces are lightly etched and present a beautiful contrast. Classic Elmwood combination material, with the gemmy corners being a nice bonus.
