This is an old mine run specimen from Franklin, NJ probably the 300' level as reported by Palache. The calcite crystal is 4cm long and is surrounded by a layer of gray green Lennilenapeite and a gemmy nodule of sphalerite. See other photos. This specimen was in the late Neil Wintringham Collection.
