Galena on Fluorite

ID: CC5085

Stacked box-like metallic grey Galena crystals on Fluorite from the Derbyshire Orefield. Crystals of Galena are in a stepped growth habit with cubic form and octahedral modifications to the corners. The Galena crystals sit neatly atop colourless-white crystals of Fluorite, on a vein of Galena with creamy white Baryte. A classic combination specimen from the Orefield.
