Fluorite, Sphalerite

Specimen # 200548
Mineral: Fluorite, Sphalerite
Location: Bluffton Stone Company Quarry, Bluffton, Richland Twp., Allen Co., Ohio, USA
Size: 6.0 x 4.5 x 3.5 cm


A beautiful combination of transparent purple fluorite cubes and sharp, sparkling crystals of red (“ruby-jack”) sphalerite. This piece is great to explore with a little magnification – some sphalerite crystals are included within fluorite. In excellent condition, and with a saw cut at the base so it stands perfectly for display. From the Pete Richards collection, he collected it on March 27, 1988. The colour combination is super.
