- Strontianite, sphalerite
Outstanding specimen of fluorescent strontianite from the famous Minerva Mine. Nice set of radial Strontianite clusters on a matrix of sphalerite crystals. Each spray consists of dozens upon dozens of Strontianite needles, the longest of which reach 17 mmin length. Naturally, some of the tips are missing, but that is to be expected amidst so many. Most are intact. Collected in 1995, this is from the finest pocket of Strontianites ever found.
