  • Here is another aesthetically challenged but very interesting specimens. Hey! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :) This specimen consists of several large, rounded, black sphalerite crystals with a large mass of silver attached. The sp[halerite is on the right of the specimen picture. There is one large, thick silver wire in the recess between the silver and the sphalerite. Little quarts crystals are scattered here and there. Really nice, interesting piece!
