Item Description

Some of the best color Sphalerite in the world comes from Spain. I am always amazed at this material, because it is one of the few transparent sulfides in the world. This stone is a good sized piece and will probably end up being a great bargain for one of you lucky bidders. This stone has decent color and size with good cutting. The color of the stone is a rich gold and orange-brown mix. There are visible inclusions, but honestly, it is very hard to obtain totally eye clean stones of this material, and the inclusions in this stone reflect light so well that they actually allow the stone to have more color play! The cut on the stone is called a "Quantum Arrowhead" Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity to own a large, beautiful rare collector stone.
