Galena with Calcite
Availability: 1 in stock
Wow. This is a wow specimen. A larger central cubic crystal is intersected/bisected/intergrown and overgrown by dozens of elongated sister crystal and then preferentially coated with an almost cement-like series of chalky “snow-like” calcite rhombohedrons. The galenas are all mirror bright, which was hard to photograph without light flashing. The specimen weighs 2.5lbs.
Locality: Kruschev Dol Mine, Madan Ore Fields, Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria
Composition: lead sulfide
