Sphalerite specimens

Specimen pieces of Sphalerite, a zinc ore that often occurs in reasonably well defined crystalline formations.

 

Currently our stocks include:

  • Various thumbnail specimen (20-30MM) from Nenthead, Alston, Cumbria. Randomly selected from our stock.
  • Several larger specimens from Smallcleugh mine, Nenthead, Alston, Cumbria. These come with labels from the original seller - sadly no names; just mineral and locale ID.
  • Various micromount - thumbnail specimens from the USA - Biggsville, Illinois, USA and Monmouth, Illinois, USA. These are unfortunately mounted in foam, and come in a labelled 1" display box. I'm not a fan of the foam mounts personally but they are easy enough to remove if you wish.
  • Various larger crystals from the Picos de Europa mountains in Spain - these are quite nice pieces with some rather gemmy areas that look great when backlit.
