Absolutely Amazing Rare and Unique, Old Stock Red and Gray Sphalerite on Crystal Calcite from Elmwood Tennessee! This specimen comes to you from the now closed Cumberland mine and its beauty is so hard to capture in photos. Its energy is sheer perfection with the synergy of calcite and sphalerite. There is even little gemmy red sphalerite crystals on the “back”! The mine is closed due to it being flooded and will not be re-opened making this specimen very rare indeed!
~Calcite will inspire you to have faith and determination to break out of your old patterns so that you can gain new experiences and move forward in a new direction. It will help you overcome your procrastination and release your fears so that you can move past your perceived blockages. Calcite is a stone that will gently amplify your energies, and it will support you in overcoming your challenges that are associated with changes and transitions.
~Sphalerite is made up of zinc sulfide, the chief ore of zinc, and is a part of the Sphalerite group. It may be yellow, brown, red or black. Sphalerite is also known as Zinc Blende. The red version may also be called Ruby Blende or Ruby Jack, but contains little to no iron content.
~Sphalerite is a grounding stone, working well with the lower chakras. It helps to balance male and female energies and increases vitality when you need it most. Sphalerite is also known to help you weigh the good and the bad in difficult situations. It also eases the transition period, especially when changing jobs. When used in mediation, Sphalerite may increase our psychic qualities, whereby information is more easily received, and we may be better able to discern reality from illusion or deception.
