RM995   Sphalerite with calcite

Troya mine, Troi, Mutiloa, Gipuzkoa, Euskadi, Spain

Large group of sphalerite crystals with an exceptional brilliance, honey color and transparency that allows light to play with the honey colors. Peppered by small crystals of calcite showing flattened shapes of the rhombohedral and prism. A little gemmy miniature. Troya mine was closed in 1993, only a few years before these specimens were collected in 1990. Nowadays the mine is collapsed and flooded.

Size: 3.6 x 3.4 x 1.8 cm.
