Calcite with Sphalerite (ruby jack), and Dolomite, Pyrite etc.
Joplin Field, Tri State District, Jasper County
Missouri, United States
11.8 x 7.7 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine piece from an American classic locality, the Tristate Joplin area. This was once a great producer of good minerals, it is now long gone and high quality pieces have become very scarce. This esthetic and unusually colorful piece has a 6 CM twinned butterscotch calcite contrasting with ruby red Sphalerites. In great condition, 1940s vintage specimen this is piece would have been far better than average back when these were plentiful. Today this quality is almost never seen.
