Excellent botryoidal sphalerite makes up the bulk of this specimen with a smattering of galena crystals around the bottom and underneath. The sphalerite is a very light brown colour on the outside indicating low iron crystallization while the inner cores shows darker brown indicating high amounts of iron earlier in the crystallization. This would be a "schalenblende" type of formation. Displays very well!
