From the Detroit City Portal of the Sweet Home Mine, near Alma, Colorado.

Not only would this make for an awesome natural Zinc sample for element collectors, but it appears to also have some Tetrahedrite, Pyrite, Quartz, and possibly some Galena, as well, so this could also make for a great Sulfur, Copper, Iron, Lead, or Silicon sample! In addition, other samples from the same vein have shown to contain trace amounts of Cadmium!

This comes from the Detroit City Portal, which only just opened at the Sweet Home Mine five to seven years ago, depending on the source. Reading more about it on mindat is definitely worth your time, but it’s quite the famous mine that opened in 1873 and has produced some of the best Rhodochrosite in the world, in addition to the tons of metal.
