Sphalerite on Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.1 x 3.8 cm
Rucheng Mine, Caojia, Rucheng Co., Chenzhou, Hunan Province, China
From famous finds here in the early 2000s, this is a brilliantly lustrous and sparkly specimen with sphalerite perched on translucent, stumpy quartz crystals. The color is very unique and interesting - glowing red-orange sphalerite with yellow highlights. Totally unique find and appearance! This specimen looks good from several angles and is one of the finer pieces I have seen turn up again recently. Joe Budd Photos
