Description

Green blende cleophane from the Madan mine in Bulgaria Year 1995

The name "cleophane" comes from the Greek "kleos" meaning "glory" and "phane" meaning "to appear". The name refers to the brilliance and brilliance of cleophane crystals.

It is better known as sphalerite when it is rich in zinc.

Stone dimensions: W: 32mm x H: 55mm x weight with base: 55g.

This stone is attached to the acrylic base with a flexible mastic (easily removable). 

Early miners, particularly in Europe, often called sphalerite "blende" or "zincblende" because of its ability to fool or "blind" lead ore seekers, as it closely resembles galena but contains no lead. The word "blende" comes from a German word meaning "to deceive".
