A super specimen of Calcite with Galena on Sphalerite from the New Glencrieff Mine, Wanlockhead, Scotland. The specimen comes from one of the last working mines in the ore field. An aesthetically positioned single crystal of translucent white to tinted pink Calcite sits upright on the specimen measuring to 5.5cm tall. Accompanied by bright metallic silvery sharp cubo-octahedral crystals of Galena, measuring to 1.5cm. A matrix of lustrous black-grey Sphalerite admirably supports the Calcite and Galena. Scattered crystals of metallic yellow Chalcopyrite are also to be seen on the specimen.
