Very Large Sphalerite—A Member of the 100 Carats Club  Picos de Europa, Santander, Spain  From a very small mine, now closed for at least twenty years, comes this superb and rare faceted sphalerite. Sphalerite, a zinc iron sulfide, is usually found in black and very rarely in the rich orange color seen here—and it is rarely seen cut into a gemstone. The luster of sphalerite is its strongest attribute, i.e. it is adamantine, with a high refractive index and brilliance greater than diamonds.

We think of deep red when we think of garnets but they come in green, too. This uvarovite garnet is from Russia and formed naturally. Lime Jello, anyone?

Houston's Museum of Natural Science has the coolest Geology exhibit.  A permanent exhibit, this is one of my favorite parts of the museum to visit.  Displayed with gorgeous lighting, you'll covet their collection of gold, rubies, diamonds, turquoise, and other precious and semi-precious gemstones.  Fabulous geodes and crystals, too, like this Bismuth Crystal.~Houston Foodlovers
