Calcite on Sphalerite
Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 5.6 x 5.4 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Truly exceptional specimen of Calcite on Calcite on Sphalerite. The main crystal, 4.3 cm tall and twinned, is a rich golden color, lustrous, and has a gemmy interior with a bit of pearly iridescence mixed in. It is pristine but for the most insignificant bit of wear on the tip. I think, for the aesthetics, its a bargain.
