Cloud Hill Quarry at Breedon on the Hill in Leicestershire has become a modern classic because of the excellent mineral specimens it has produced over recent years.  Galena is not that common and this small miniature is a typical example, formed from several intergrown crystals, all distorted from the cube to an orthorhombic-type habit.  The light grey Galena crystals have rough matt faces; a result of natural etching and probable micro-crystals of Cerussite on their surface, but coated in an oxidised layer.
