23124: Sphalerite and Quartz
Picher Field, Tri-State District, Ottawa County, Oklahoma
Cabinet - 13.5 x 10.1 x 7.7 cm (5.3 x 4.0 x 3.0 inches)
Weight - 1140 grams (2.51 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

Something a little different from Picher Field! A cluster of rather large, dark amber, quite lustrous, modified sphalerite crystals with a blanket of sharp and colorless quartz crystals, a bit like ice from a late-season snowstorm. The largest individual quartz crystal is 2 cm (a monster for the locality). A few second generation sphalerites sit atop the quartz. Sits perfectly for display as shown on a naturally flat sphalerite face. Minor rubs and scratches, but nothing significant on the display face. Kinda nifty!
