Sphalerite with Dolomite and Calcite.
NR27AL5: Sphalerite with Dolomite and Calcite
Polycrystalline growth of Sphalerite with slightly curved edges and faces, transparent, very bright and with a very deep honey color, with dominant yellow and orange tones. On matrix, with white rhombohedral Dolomite crystals and Calcite crystal coatings.
Las Mánforas Mine, Áliva mining area, Camaleño, Comarca Liébana, Cantabria  Spain

Sphalerite with Dolomite and Calcite.
ET90L1: Sphalerite with Dolomite and Calcite
Very complex Sphalerite crystal groups. Very sharp faces and edges, some of them with interesting curvatures. Crystals are translucent, with a dark honey color, on rhombohedral white Dolomite and scalenohedral yellowish Calcite crystals. Elmwood is one of the great classics of the USA for Calcite crystals, but also it has provided excellent Sphalerite specimens. So, as we said, a great one.

Group of complex Sphalerite crystals, transparent (with back lighting) and lustrous, with an intense color, on a matrix of white rhombohedral Dolomite crystals and small lenticular crystals of light cream colored Siderite. A great French classic with a crystal size bigger than usual in this deposit and with the isolated crystals appearing in very good contrast with the white Dolomite crystals.
La Mure coal mines, La Mure, Matheysine-Trièves, Grenoble, Isère, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes  France (±1980)

Druse of small, complex, twinned Sphalerite crystals, extraordinarily bright and transparent and with a very deep honey color. The matrix is partially coated by small, white Dolomite crystals and rhombohedral Siderite crystals. This mine is currently abandoned and flooded, and its old galleries are completely inaccessible.

They are translucent, very bright, with curved faces and edges and with a very deep reddish color, and on a matrix of white Dolomite crystals with a small group of brown Siderite rhombohedrons. The mine is currently collapsed and filled with water, so such Sphalerite samples are currently part of Spanish mineralogical history.

Sphalerite with Fluorapatite and Muscovite.
JFD155AO7: Sphalerite with Fluorapatite and Muscovite
Look out! A specimen like this is rare in Panasqueira. Sphalerite is not usually found there in good specimens, but moreover, when it is, it is almost always associated with other sulphides, which yields less luminous groups. In this case, the association with Fluorapatite, well crystallized and with a fibrous appearance, and Muscovite with a good color, results in a very unusual specimen, a real curiosity for those who specialise in this mine.
Minas da Panasqueira, Aldeia de São Francisco de Assis, Covilhã, Castelo Branco, Cova da Beira, Centro  Portugal (±2005)
Specimen size: 10.4 × 6.6 × 3.7 cm = 4.09” × 2.60” × 1.46”

Sphalerite with Fluorite on Quartz.
JFD23AN6: Sphalerite with Fluorite on Quartz
Although later more sphalerites with Fluorite were found in the La Viesca mine, when the first ones were found they caused much excitement among mineral collectors in Spain due to their novelty. I remember that they were very sought after and that in the end I was able to get one thanks to the deeply missed José Ramón García. Some time later, more pieces of Sphalerite with Fluorite came out, some even with relatively large crystals, although perhaps not as light in color as these first ones.

Sphalerite with Galena.
FA66: Sphalerite with Galena
Surprising association of Galena & gemmy Sphalerite. No other specimens that I have seen were found with this particular association. All well placed on the classic white Dolomite matrix. We photographed both faces, as both have good quality.
