Thumbnail, 2.5 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm
A UNIQUE and SHOWY thumbnail of a blocky, sharp, black sphalerite crystal on nicely set on a bed of metallic-bright chalcopyrite crystals from a very small recent Bolivian find at a NEW locality, the Nanitay Mine. The pristine, bright sphalerite crystal has a magical chatoyant shimmer that the photos catch only a part of. Fascinating crystals and highly regarded.
