Sphalerite pendant

We are so excited about our amazing Sphalerite find!
It is a very old stock of natural crystals from the Spanish mine "Mina Las Manforas", also known by the name Áliva. Lead and later zinc ore have been mined in this mine on several levels since the 16th century. The mine has been closed since the 1980s, we have heard that the area has now been declared a nature reserve and the mine is under water.

The Sphalerites of Mina Las Manforas are world famous for their stunning crystallization, luster and color.

The sphalerites have a stunning play of light that is impossible to capture with a camera, in the sun they can dazzle like a mirror, the cabochons are not as dazzling as the disks but rather have a slightly more flat shine due to the curvature

Pendant with eyelet 38mm

Sphalerite 23.5x22mm

Pendant weight with silver 6.55grams

The pendant has a large eyelet ideal for thicker chains

Each stone is unique and a true rarity and a special collector's item
which is very limited in availability!
