An opaque mound of deep brown sphalerite crystals. The luster is bright and resinous; better than my lousy photos suggest. Scattered microchipping seen under the hand lens, but other than the usual back and edge issues in quite fine condition overall. Displays perfectly from many angles on its naturally flat base. Classic Elmwood Mine material.
