ER27AE4: Aggregate of very sharp Sphalerite (marmatite variety) crystals with a very well defined spinel law twin. They have an intense black color and are very bright and partially coated by botryoidal Rhodochrosite with small Arsenopyrite crystals and a base of Galena with small Pyrites The sample is from a relatively recent find in Trepča.

ER50AE4: Single Fluorite crystal implanted on a Quartz crystal. The Fluorite has a neat octahedral shape but clearly shows two different growth phases, a crystal within a crystal!. The first one has slightly curved faces and edges and rough surfaces. The second phase has very sharp forms with perfectly defined faces and edges. It is translucent and has a very deep and uniform green color.
