Galena with Smithsonite

$700.00   €626  £560.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC15901
Although abundant as one of the principle ores at Tsumeb, Galena occurring as collectable crystals is surprisingly rare.  This large thumbnail is a beautiful example, dominated by one large, roughly 2.0 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm cuboctahedral dull lead-grey equant crystal with a smaller, similar crystal attached to one side.  In keeping with crystallised Galena from Tsumeb, all of the faces are striated, a feature probably caused by lamellar twinning.  Small, 2 to 3 mm, slightly pink curved rhombohedral Smithsonite crystals are scattered around the periphery of the Galena.  A great specimen.
