ID: CC19880
This splendid thumbnail specimen has a single and almost perfect solitary Galena spinel twinned crystal attached to a spray of brilliant glassy Quartz crystals. The lozenge-shaped silver-grey Galena twin measures 2.2 by 1.5 cm across its tips and has a waxy metallic lustre. The re-entrant angles of the symmetrically-twinned faces are superbly defined, making this an excellent example of Galena twinning. A little beauty from the Dal’negorsk mining district in Primorsky Krai, Russia, attached to a transparent, colourless acrylic cubic base.
