Item Description

A SUPERB CABINET combination plate with VERY GEMMY, golden-yellow sphalerite crystals, brassy chalcopyrite crystals and a few, scattered galena crystals from the small find a few years ago at the famous Commodore Mine at Creede, Colorado. MANY of the highly lustrous, black-looking sphalerite crystals, are, in fact, partially gemmy. The largest gemmy sphalerite crystal is 1.3 cm. These caused a major stir at the Tucson Show, when they came out. This is an EXCEPTIONAL specimen from this find and here is your chance to get a really good one, if you missed out. Ex Ed David Collection and valued at $900.
