Galena and Pyrite

ID: CC13143
Collectors of Cornish minerals know just how difficult it is to find a well crystallised Cornish Galena specimen and this example from Wheal Jane (3 sub level East) is one of only a few we have ever had from this mine. The Galena sits on a matrix of Quartz Arsenopyrite and Sphalerite.
