Sphalerite is one of the few minerals that can range from gemlike transparent crystals to dark metallic/black crystals. This piece has a resinous luster and looks amazing on display.
Sphalerite is a highly collectible stone since it's notoriously difficult to cut because of its softness and tendency to cleave.
Metaphysically, sphalerite is considered to be a very intense stone, its most powerful attribute being the ability to help prevent nervousness and fatigue.
I love how the dark charcoal-gray color of this piece contrasts against the pale, light blue. This piece would be beautiful cut into slabs, or it's even amazing on its own 👌🏾
