Calcite with Galena
Out of stock
From my personal collection (obtained from Chris Wright in 1998) comes this nearly 6cm trigonal crystal with fish scale surfaces resting on a shard of calcareous matrix with a distorted galena cube. I received this piece as repaired (the galena) but bought it for the perfection of the calcite. It has one small area in the back where it contacted another calcite. Although it has little color it is very bright orange under LW.
Locality: 2ns Sovietsky Mine, Dal’Negorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Russia
