ID: CC19303
A specimen of solid steel-grey Galena forming tightly intergrown cubic crystals from Rotherhope Fell mine, southwest of Alston, on Alston Moor, Cumbria, England.  Faces of the Galena crystals can attain 2 cm on edge, but are generally much smaller due to interference from the tightly packed adjacent crystals.  Occasional patches of micro-crystallised drusy Quartz overgrow the Galena.  A rarely seen Galena specimen from this classic mine.
