Here is something different, and quite rare, from the historical Picher field, small, sugary Quartz crystals scattered across the surface of red/brown Sphalerite crystals. Quartz crystals are quite rare from the Tri State district. The Quartz is clear to white in color and has a bright sparkly luster. The Sphalerite has a high, submetallic luster. There are also a few Chalcopyrite crystals scattered across the surface of the Sphalerite.
Flaws: There are a few small bruises in places.
