Sphalerite, Quartz, Galena
Bachelor Mine, Amethyst Vein, Creede District, Mineral Co., Colorado, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 3.3 x 3.3 cm
This is a very distinctive Creede Quartz and sulfide association specimen. The Sphalerite is very gemmy with the typical honey and green color that one is accustomed to seeing from this mine. Both the Sphalerite and Galena are lustrous, and the chalky white Quartz makes for a nice contrast. Exact mine location is the OH vein. This piece came from the Richard A. Kosnar collection and was mined in 1957 by Bob Hartman.
