Krushev dol deposit, Krushev dol mine, Madan ore field, Rhodope Mts, Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
Miniature, 4.1 x 4.0 x 2.5 cm
A truly spectacular specimen of GEMMY, OLIVE-GREEN sphalerite crystals with incredible luster, perched on quartz matrix. It is much better in person and is really just striking and colorful (you get an idea from the closeup), though hard to photograph. I have seen a lot of these over the years and few so rich and colorful as this fine plate. MUCH BETTER In PERSON... 4.1 x 4 x 2.5 cm
