ID: CC8531
An extremely rare specimen of well crystallised cubic Galena for the Tsumeb mine in Namibia and without doubt the finest I have seen having personally collected Tsumeb minerals for over thirty years. Three cubic Galena crystals form an inter-grown cluster with the largest of them measuring to 2.5 cm on its longest edge. These are partly overgrown by greyish-cream Dolomite crystals with scattered gemmy crystals of yellow Mimetite up to 9 mm long. A really superb Tsumeb Galena with the terrific addition of associated Mimetite.
