Miniature - 4.2 x 3.0 x 2.8 cm (1.7 x 1.2 x 1.1 inches)

This specimen is nearly 100% reddish brown, lustrous sphalerite, barely translucent and with an iridescent surface. Accented with a few brassy chalcopyrite crystals to 3 mm. The sphalerite is rubbed in a few spots, and cleaved around the edges and base, and some of the chalcopyrites are incomplete; the specimen price reflects this. Displays nicely on its flat, cleaved base. An affordable classic Tri-state District miniature.
