Sphalerite with unknown inclusions
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Canada
Mont Saint-Hilaire, La Vallée-du-Richelieu RCM, Montérégie, Québec, Canada
A very gemmy greeen sphalerite crystal from Mont St. Hilaire, in Quebec, Canada! The interior of this crystal is incredibly gemmy and is included with an acicular mineral that I have not been able to identify. There are some gem areas that may yield nice stones, even gem areas where these interesting inclusions are situated. I was unable to photograph the inclusions, or capture how gemmy it is due to a black coating that I was unable to remove, but I think this would be a great project for a faceter.
