Fluorite on Sphalerite
Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Miniature, 5.2 x 4.8 x 4.7 cm
SUPER Miniature! Two nearly equant, translucent, rich, lavender colored crystals of fluorite, to 2.5 cm across are perched on crystals of splendent, black, sphalerite. There is one bruise on the center edge of the large fluorite, but it does not affect the visual quality of the piece (though in my mind, I halved the price as a result).
