Rare Sphalerite samples from Elmwood, Tennessee
Approx. 2 - 1.5"
Sphalerite is a zinc sulfide mineral that gets its name from the Greek word "sphaleros," meaning deceiving. But fear not! It was named for the seemingly endless variations that make it difficult to identify. It occurs in many different colors, including white, green, red, and black. Black Sphalerite is also called Black Jack and gets its color from large amounts of iron. The presence of iron amplifies its balancing and grounding energies.
Due to the nature of our products each piece is unique and therefore varies in shape and size. Our sizing of the stones is a close approximation.

How to Use:
Once your new crystal arrives, we suggest cleansing and charging it before you begin using it for meditation, manifestation, or other practices. You never know who has handled your crystal on its journey from where it was harvested to you. Cleansing and charging your crystal ensures that it is ready for you to use however you wish.
One of the most popular ways to use crystals of all shapes is by placing them around your home or workspace. You can also carry them with you in a pocket or purse, or wear them as jewelry.
Rough, unpolished crystals are as close as you can come to encountering crystals in their natural form. Some believe that these more natural and unworked stones produce a greater amount of energy. These pieces are best suited for decoration as many are either too large to hold for long periods or they are more fragile in their natural state. Place these types of crystal specimens in a room to promote positive energy and balance.
Some crystals are sensitive to direct sunlight, so it's important to avoid exposing them to prolonged periods of sunlight. Exposure to sunlight can cause fading, discoloration, or even cracking in some crystals. If you want to display your crystals in a sunny area, consider placing them behind glass or in a shaded area. Additionally, it's important to handle these crystals with care and avoid exposing them to sudden temperature changes, as this can also cause damage.
