We are all partial to a slice of layer cake, be this chocolate, vanilla or, in this case, Fluorite, Galena and Quartz.  This very tasty morsel from the Laker Cake Pocket is composed of lead-grey cuboctahedral Galena crystals intergrown with gemmy lemon-yellow Fluorite and heavily encrusted with bright glassy colourless stubby Quartz crystals.  Deposition of the Quartz is preferential, coating parallel aligned faces of the specimen and so forming the distinct layers.  Mouth-wateringly delicious!
