Sphalerite with Calcite


A striking piece feature numerous intersecting rosettes of translucent, creamy white, flattened, lenticular Calcite crystals perfectly centered on top of a jet-black cluster of Sphalerite crystals. The silky luster of the Calcite on top of the metallic luster of the Sphalerite, along with the white and black colors makes for an exceptional contrast piece! The symmetry, crystal formation and contrast is amazing. In excellent condition.
