Galena with Quartz

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC15355
Lead-grey cubic crystals of Galena, each with modified corners to the octahedron, compose this excellent specimen.  Each of the intergrown crystals are a good size for Tsumeb, with the largest measuring 1.6 x 1.5 x 1.3 cm.  All Galena faces are pitted due to natural etching processes during post-deposition paragenesis, with a few retaining traces of face striations, commonly observed in Tsumeb Galena.   Tiny, yet well formed Quartz crystals to 5 mm, with a orangey-tan surface coating, are scattered over the Galena crystals, together with equant colourless rhombs of what appears to be Calcite rather than Smithsonite.
