I hope there's no limit on asking for help from mineral specimen professionals;

Here's another specimen; 3 cm. It's Sphalerite. The label says "Peru", and that's it. No further specifications. I hope someone can help and give me a possible mine from where this specimen might have come from.

The specimen also has some Calcite (or Dolomite) which is clearly visible on the photo.

Thanks,
Mathias

Hello,

I'm not an expert about Peru even if I collect sulfides. Giving you an exact location based on your photo might be difficult as the mineralogy on your specimen is quite common around the world.

Did you try to visit Mindat and check for Sphalerite from Peru ? This would give you hints about locality candidates.

Hi Matthias

There is no limit as long as you post them just one or two at a time and they good photos of specimens that are likely to be recognizable or the localities might be known to us. Keep them coming because it is good mental exercise for us "Mineral specimen professionals."
