Galena, Sphalerite
Picher Field, Tri-State District, Ottawa Co., Oklahoma, USA
Cabinet, 11.9 x 8.9 x 4.8 cm
Another fine Tri-State piece - this, a large, gorgeous galena cube with four smaller ones accenting it. The big one measures 3 cm along the edge. There are some tiny ruby-jack sphalerites on the matrix as well. It is the isolation of these crystals and their attractive arrangement on the matrix that makes this specimen so showy. Ex. Feist Collection.
