Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 5.3 x 3.8 cm
An aesthetic fluorite cluster from the Elmwood Mine. Lustrous, translucent, pretty purple cubes to 3.3 x 3.3 cm have deeper purple edges and colorless interiors. The striking, stepped-growth faces really add character to this excellent piece, which is on sphalerite matrix. Classic material from this noted locale. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
