A wonderful example of lustrous, translucent yellow-brown Sphalerite crystals on violet amethyst crystals from the Commodore Mine in Creede, Colorado. This piece was collected around 2001 during reclamation efforts at this now-closed underground Pb-Zn-Ag-Au mine. Great color contrast and large, undamaged sphalerite crystals make this a great piece for this classic Colorado locality.
