An absolutely gorgeous and large plate of gem sphalerite crystals shows of its deep brown and red hues amongst a frosty and detailed druzy quartz. The sphalerites are of all sizes and the larger crystals show nice angles and exceptional internal clarity. Close examination of the plate does show some minor nicks and scuffing, but they are in no way a distraction from the overall impressive aesthetics of the specimen.
