A really nice attractive specimen of this zinc ore mineral! It is a large cluster of dark brown sphalerite crystals that have small chalcopyrite crystals, many oriented, on the sphalerite. The druse of small quartz crystals are draped over the sphalerites, preferentially, like snow on a rock outcrop. Very nice!
