Specimen # 200561
Mineral: Sphalerite
Location: Bluffton Stone Company Quarry, Bluffton, Richland Twp., Allen Co., Ohio, USA
Size: 5.8 x 2.5 x 2.0 cm


Small, sharp, sparkling crystals of red (“ruby-jack”) sphalerite. This looks super with a little magnification – they are little red gems. In excellent condition. From the Pete Richards collection, he collected it on March 27, 1988. Not large, but just beautiful under magnification.
