Sphalerite and Galena, Gjudurska Mine, Zlatograd District, Southern Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria, Mined 2010, Miniature 2.0 x 3.0 x .3.8 cm, $25. Online 7/2. SOLD.
In my opinion, the Gjusdurska Mine has produced some of the finest sphalerites since my travels to Bulgaria beginning in the mid1990s. This miniature shows the classic triangular form with beveled edges and flat modifications on the triangular points. Choice miniature from mining 2010. Nearly a floater with just a touch of attachment on base. Good association with galena and in great condition.
