Ruby-jack colored lustrous sphalerite crystals forming a sphere that sits on a matrix of sparkling marcasite. Mined in 2015-16, these were held back by a local miner and released in Sept. and made their way to us. To my knowledge, this is the first time that sphalerite has been found in such perfect spherical aggregates. They were written up and photographed for the “What’s New Report” of the Min. Rec.
