Ex. A. Neely, 1960s


White, crudely formed, aggregates of Aragonite crystals have grown on the terminations of Sphalerite crystals which are a dark brown almost black color with reddish highlights. There is a very unusual, oval shaped cast in the Sphalerite on the back side of the specimen. The Aragonite has no luster but the Sphalerite has a nice glossy almost greasy looking luster. The oval cast has a very high luster. Aragonite specimens from Hardin County are not common and are seldom available.

Condition: Good

Flaws: The Sphalerite is cleaved below the Argonite on the side with the unusual cast.
