Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
A very aesthetic, classic fluorite on sphalerite specimen from the Elmwood Mine. A gorgeous, 2.7 x 2.4 cm fluorite cube is perched on iridescent sphalerite. The translucent, highly lustrous cube has super purple color, scintillating, stepped-growth faces and beautiful, darker purple, color-zoned edges. This is classic, color, form and habit from Elmwood. These were found in one pocket, long ago.
