Fabulous example of Schalenblende!  This is about as good as it gets!  I especially like the metallic areas scattered through this cab.  The first few photos were taken in diffused light to show the shiny metallic Galena and Marcasite best. The last two photos were taken under a 100 watt light bulb.

Schalenblende comes from Poland and is a mix of sphalerite, Galena, Zinc, Marcasite and Wurtzite.  It makes fantastic cabs when you can find rough that's solid with no fractures that will cut cabs.

This gem has a flat back and low domed top. Well cut for bezel setting or wire wrap.

Both sides have an extremely smooth, very glassy polish. 

VERY nice collector quality Schalenblende cab.

38mm (1-1/2") x 19mm and 5.5mm thick.
