SKU: BluZincSulf Categories: , , Tags: ,


This is a sample of zinc and copper bearing ore is primarily sphalerite and some minor Chaclo-Pyrite respectively from the Long Lac mine in eastern Ontario.  Due to that copper content the sphalerite it self has deviated from its normal dark browns to (after exposure to air) has taken on a blue metallic Tarnish.                                                                                                                         It measures 3″ by 2″ by 2″ and weighs in at just under a pound, so shipping should be  $12.50!!  for most locals within North America.
