Fluorite With Galena

ID: CC613
Light green Fluorite crystals ranging from gemmy to translucent and measuring up to 1.5cm. A number of cubes are interpenetration twins. The Fluorite crystals are growing on a layer of Calcite on matrix, and are intergrown with crystals of Galena, which are coated with pale grey finely sparkling layer of Cerussite, and in some places a white Calcite druse. Some Galena crystals are showing a cubo-octahedral crystal form. An interesting English specimen from a classic location.
