Hydrozincite, Calcite, Sphalerite
Picher Field, Tri-State District, Ottawa Co., Oklahoma, USA
Cabinet, 10.5 x 6.7 x 6.0 cm
A large plate from the famous Picher, Oklahoma Field of the Tri-State District. Three, large, to 4.5 cm, hydrozincite-coated gemmy, amber calcite scalenohedrons dramatically project upward, like snow-wreathed mountains from a flat plain of silicified limestone, which is very attractively complimented with smaller coated calcite crystals and gemmy, ruby-jack sphalerite crystals. Ex. George Feist Collection, #2993.
