Sphalerite on Quartz, Kruchev dol Mine, Madan District, Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria Miniature 4.5 x 5 x 6 cm $250. Online 7/7
Gemmy green sphalerite on drusy quartz matrix from the sensational pocket found in the Krudhev dol Mine 2012. Normally these specimens are quite large and cumbersome with very thick and incredibly hard matrix. Trimming is a real chore. This specimen is a true exception to the rule with just enough matrix to show the style of pocket and a good spread of the high transparent crystals famous from the district. In great condition.
