ID: CC19022
A bright and highly reflective, silver cuboctahedral crystal of Galena nestles in a bed of magnificent golden honey-tan Siderite crystals from Neudorf in the Harz mountains of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.  The Galena crystal is naturally pitted through some process of etching, yet clearly displays both the cube and octahedron faces.  The Siderite is deeply glassy with superb translucency and gently curved lozenge-shaped crystals to 1 cm on edge.
