Description

A very old heavy sphalerite specimen from the Castor mine in very good condition, especially when we consider its age (the label mentions 1880). The matrix is solid sphalerite ore and in a vug there are numerous honey-colored sphalerite crystals. Only after photographing I noticed there are even more excellent sphalerites on the backside of the specimen. I can provide more pictures on request.
