Item Description

A showy and excellent cluster of brilliantly sharp, stepped-growth face, twinned, sphalerite crystals to 2.2 cm dusted with pyrite and a cute spray of quartz needle. Classic, seldom seen combination material from this long-closed locality. Comes with a 1970s-era Roberts Minerals label, that incorrectly lists the sphalerite as tetrahedrite - understandable given the super sharp crystal form here, and freaky luster. Ex Jaime Bird Collection.
