These crystals of Sphalerite, with a comparatively dull luster and black color due to a high iron content, do not exceed 1/4 inch in diameter. They are, however, very well-formed, coating a matrix of of massive (it's large, too!) Pyrite that itself exhibits a small amount of crystallization on some of its surfaces. This is a somewhat unusual piece due to its high iron content, and even fooled Steve for a little while, as he was used to seeing the lighter-colored and more lustrous Elmwood Sphalerite.
