ID: CC3463
A characteristic miniature of a well-formed 'tabular' Galena crystal from Wanlockhead's last working mine, New Glencrieff.  The specimen is dominated by a bright metallic grey Galena crystal measuring to 2.2 x 1.2 x 1.7 cm, this being well positioned on the central area of the crystallized lustrous black Sphalerite matrix.  Also to be seen on the specimen are two brassy yellow crystals of Chalcopyrite, and several smaller crystals of Galena.  An impressive example of well crystallised Galena from the Wanlockhead orebody and one very typical of its distinctive crystal forms.
