Calcite on Sphalerite

$65.00

A large specimen of matrix encrusted with miniature crystals of Sphalerite and Calcite hosting a single large transparent scalenohedron crystal of amber-colored Calcite. I am especially drawn to matrix pieces that highlight a single crystal, and this sure fits the bill. Great contrast, great luster all around and for me, I like the symmetry – not everything needs to be centered. Upon close inspection, there is a minor nick on the back of the Calcite crystal – it is not distracting nor visible from the front, and it is reflected in the price. This is a great aesthetic piece for an even greater price.
