Here is a very fine, old-time classic, large cabinet sized specimen of sphalerite with galena from the Tri-State District in Missouri. The sphalerite is lustrous, and is colored a rich reddish-brown. The sphalerite crystals on this specimen formed on a dark druzy quartz matrix that is topped with large, dark gray galena crystals, to 1.2".  The tetragonal crystals are metallic, and very sharply formed. No damage. This specimen comes out of my own collection, and was collected in 1971.
