I’ve seen and handled many a Galena cube in my time, but my-oh-my, this is one mighty beauty! Dare I say it reminds me of a Borg cube, yet delightful as opposed to super-scary! From West Fork mine at Centerville in Reynolds County, Missouri, USA, one single, slightly distorted cube measuring 6 cm along each edge is attached by one corner to a minor matrix of dull grey, fine-granular mixed sulphides and micro-crystals of colourless, rhombic Calcite. The Galena crystal is bright metallic silver with each face displaying fascinating patchworks of linear geometric crystal growth. It’s a stunning Galena and a fabulous example of the species, nicely priced at just $350. This is one heavy specimen so take care if you intend to display it on a glass shelf! A Galena crystal for which resistance is futile!
