Fluorite, Sphalerite
Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.4 x 3.2 cm
A very aesthetic and classic combination specimen from the Elmwood Mine. Two gorgeous, purple fluorite cubes, to 1.9 cm, are set on either side of a sharp, highly lustrous, partially gemmy, ruby-jack sphalerite crystal. The highly lustrous and translucent fluorites have beautiful purple color-zoning and pronounced stepped-growth faces. This striking combination piece is pristine in the display view. Ex. Jesse Fisher Collection.
