This specimen is composed of a mound of black, lustrous, and sparkling sphalerite, with crystals ranging from tiny to 1.5 cm. The largest crystal is slightly translucent with greenish yellow tinges. Also present are galena crystals (hoppered and corroded, except where cleaved) and a few quartz points. There is very little on this specimen that could be called damage. Sits perfectly for display at numerous angles on its natural base where removed from matrix. Add a little black to your mineral cabinet with this classic Madan combination specimen.
