The Madan Ore Field in the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria has been worked since early Roman times and although a wide variety of mineral species are produced, it is perhaps best known for its seemingly endless habits of beautifully crystallised Galena (lead sulphide).  This superb miniature is a bright silver metallic group of intergrown cubic, cuboctahedral and octahedral crystals with all the crystals faces aligned by epitaxial growth.  A beautiful, eye-catching and fascinating Galena.
