Sphalerite in Quartz

 
<<< Return to GEMSTONES
Specimen Code Number: LU071227
Learn more about: Sphalerite
  Quartz
Special Inclusions
14.50 carats
Size: Thumbnail
1.5x1.3x0.7 cm
Location: Goias
Brazil
Description: A rectangular cabochon with several triangular crystals of dark red Sphalerite inside.
The back of the cabochon is actually a natural crystal face that is
quite smooth and was preserved so all the inclusions near the surface would be undisturbed.
I actually would set the cabochon upside down because the view from the natural face is better.
You can see the Sphalerites are transparent when backlit.
It weighs 14.50 carats and comes from a recent find in Goias State in central Brazil.
It's the first time I see well crystallized, gemmy Sphalerites inside Quartz.
There is an article on Gem-A's Journal of Gemmology. Vol 35/N1 2016 on this find from Goias.
