Sphalerite, Pyrite, Baryte
Wiesloch, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany
Small Cabinet, 5.3 x 5.0 x 0.9 cm
A really interesting and showy, sliced and polished slab, from a nodule of banded sphalerite and pyrite from a classic German locale - Wiesloch, near Heidelberg. The plumose character of the pyrite and sphalerite is fascinating and the contrasting, white baryte is a very nice accent. Ex. Mullane Collection and accompanied by an Anton Berger label: well-known Austrian mineral dealers from the 1920s-1950s.
