Numerous deep red-brown sphalerite crystals, well formed and lustrous, are scattered about a matrix covered with small but abundant and quite sparkly quartz crystals. The sphalerites reach 2.4 cm, and are in very nice condition. Quartz is rarely recognized in Elmwood Mine specimens: of the 1475 specimen photos for this locality at Mindat, only 53 feature quartz.
