Sphalerite on quartz with galena
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
14.3x9x10 CM (cabinet)
A reddish druzy quartz matrix hosts several well formed ruby color sphalerite crystals reaching 2.3 CM and clusters to 5.3 cm. With top or backlighting the crystals glow well, they look darker red to black with front light. There is some nice bright galena as well. This like many has been sawn for removal. This may also be a good candidate for artful re trimming. Very reasonably priced!
