Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, United States of America
Class: 
Crystals on Matrix
Size Range: 
Cabinet (10-18 cm)
Size: 
16 × 11.5 × 9.7 cm
Description

The main crystal is up to 45mm on edges, it shows light lavender color and this - typical for Elmwood - amazing texture; the faces seem to consist of uncountable tiny squares. This huge crystal is perched on a wonderful matrix, which is covered with highly lustrous sphalerite crystals - they really show mirror-luster and they are up to 40mm across. But there are also areas of light grey matrix, which are filled with tiny sparkling, white dolomite crystals, which gives even more contrast to this superb specimen. It is out of Europe´s leading private collection; the collection of Fabian Wildfang, which stands for aesthetics and quality on highest level. No significant damages to report and very showy in various positions. Will come with the "Wildfang"-label.
