A sharp, well-formed, green, possibly gemmy crystal of sphalerite with small axinite crystals on the matrix around the base. I say possibly gemmy, since the crystal is frosted but appears to easily transmit light internally. Nice crystal, albeit small, from a mine that is well known for such crystals!
