Manuel - Your sphalerite with quartz from Bulgaria is truly exceptional. How fortunate you were to be able to acquire it. I will soon post a sphalerite I acquired in Galena, Kansas this summer. You may be aware of Galena, as it is a rather famous locale. It produced specimens which lack the beauty of this Bulgarian piece.

Welcome back Manuel.

Good news for you: your "Magnetite" in fact is Wurtzite. And excellent BTW!

Mineral: Magnetite with Olshanskyite and Roweite
Locality: Shijiangshan Mine, Linxi, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia A.R., China
Dimensions: 94 X 78 mm

Well, the life is complicated... ;-) Just to be sure I ordered the analysis of one of these larger crystals, almost equal to your specimen and it is Magnetite. So, in this mine co-exist small, dark-brown crystals of Wurtzite and larger, black crystals of Magnetite. Sorry for the mix-up.

I will publish copy of the analysis as soon as I get the report.
