This is a great old specimen, probably dating to the 1950s or 60s, featuring very large sphalerite crystals. I used to see these all the time, but they were all damaged. This one is pristine, with all crystals complete and undamaged. The formation is very sculptural and interesting. The surfaces of the large sphalerites are scattered with smaller ruby sphalerites, plus the surfaces are sprinkled with micro-size pyrite crystals that sparkle in the light. Top quality pieces like this are hard to find today. This one comes out of my own collection.
