Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 6.3 x 6.1 cm
A fine and beautiful fluorite cube attached to a bit of sphalerite matrix from the Elmwood Mine and the Consie Prince Collection. The glassy, translucent, light purple cube has beautiful, stepped-growth faces. The color is very pleasing - lighter than normal and so more translucent to light.
