An complexly crystallized sphalerite specimen with deep brown color. The luster is incredible, and not captured in my lousy photos. Looks much like a specimen from the neighboring, more familiar Elmwood Mine. Incomplete on the base where removed from matrix, and some very tiny, scattered microchipping is seen under the hand lens; otherwise the condition is quite nice. Displays beautifully.
