ID: CC10108
Grey-black metallic globular clusters of the very rare mineral Plagionite are richly distributed over a miniature bed of modified octahedral Galena crystals from the Pfannenberger Einigkeit mine, at Salchendorf in North Rhine-Westphalia.  Plagionite is a lead-antimony sulphide and forms hemispherical micro-cockscomb clusters of 2 to 3 mm diameter, of deep lead-grey.  Scattered over the Galena and between the Plagionite are micro-crystals of brassy Chalcopyrite.  A superb specimen and example of this very rare species, Plagionite.
