Sphalerite, Calcite
Salem, Washington Co., Indiana, USA
Large Cabinet, 18.9 x 15.2 x 12.2 cm
This is a very large, gaping pocket lined with sharp dogtooth crystals of calcite, upon which sit sharp crystals of sphalerite measuring to 1.5 cm. They are quite dramatic in their isolation on the contrasting stark white calcites. This fine piece is from mining in 1979.
