ID: CC19011
A superb and rare, ex-matrix specimen of a Galena Gonderbach twin from Nassau, Rhein-Lahn-Kreis, Rhineland-Palatinate.  The dull lead-grey Galena takes the habit of a flattened, 4 mm thick Galena cube with octahedral modifications and twinning, termed ‘Gonderbach twinned’ after the Gonderbach mine in North Rhine-Westphalia.  The crystal has good crystal definition, showing both re-entrant and normal prism faces.  An interesting and unusual twinned Galena from Nassau.
