Sphalerite on Chert
Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 7.4 x 5.0 cm
Perched on a gray chert matrix is a cluster of splendent, black, sphalerite crystals, the largest of which measure 3.0 cm across. Very nice and among the best sphalerites for this size I have seen from the mine...this collection was particularly well stocked on sphalerite!
