Sphalerite - 418

Corrantee Mine, Lochaber, Highland Region, Scotland


The remotest of the Strontian mines, Corrantee was prospected for zinc in the 1950's but nothing came of it.  Sphalerite crystals can be found but usually later calcite needs to be dissolved off to expose the crystals.  This specimen shows aggregated and single sharply formed crystals investing a thin rock matrix.
