    Here is an excellent Sphalerite! This gem is a fiery orange with flashes of yellow color that are vibrant. There is a red stripe running through the middle of the stone that is quite attractive. The clarity of this stone is great for Sphalerite and has small bubble inclusions throughout that give this stone a misty appearance. Spain is renowned for its beautiful yellow, orange and red colors of Sphalerite that have not been found in significant quantity from any other locality. The mine has been closed for many years now, and these beauties are a dwindling treasure. Sphalerite is one of the more difficult gems to facet because of its softness, cleavage and brittle nature. So to have such a bright polish and sharp facets is practically special. This gemstone was faceted by Robert Heath. Enjoy!
