Comment: Sphalerite is rarly seen in jewelry because it is soft (like ivory or coral, that is). I always wanted to study its legedary dispersion (beating diamonds by a factor of three) and leaving even my favorite titanite well behind. Very interesting material. I will get a really big one next time. Also it is one of the few gems still mined in Europe. It has a honey color with green and yellow-orange thrown in. Can be set into pendants but needs extra care. Nice little addition to a collection. And not expensive at all.
