Galena on Quartz

ID: CC19151
A very good, well crystallised Galena on Quartz from the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic.  The specimen is labelled as “Steinmannite”, this being a variety of Galena in which part of the lead has been replaced with antimony and arsenic.  The Galena forms sharp, well developed, complex crystals, displaying many forms of the cuboctahedron which extend to the perfect octahedron, all with a bright metallic silver-grey lustre.  These are surrounded by semi-transparent, grey Quartz crystals, with a bright glassy lustre.  An interesting and aesthetic specimen.
