Spherical aggregates of small Siderite crystals have grown on a rather large, black colored Sphalerite crystal. The Siderite spheres are an attractive peachy pink/orange color which varies in shade. The surfaces Sphalerite have a high luster. Most of the triangular faces of the Sphalerite are composed of sub crystal surfaces with the exception of one face which is all one flat surface with light striations and a very high luster. There are small Pyrite cubes located at one end of the specimen. Close examination reveals micro crystals of Pyrite scattered across the surfaces of the Sphalerite with the exception of the smooth face.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
