ID: CC2278

A classic specimen of Galena on Siderite from the famous Neudorf mining area in Germany. The Galena forms a 3cm by 2.3cm intergrown group of cubo-octahedral crystals, with bright metallic luster, aesthetically set at the top of the specimen. The Galena crystals have grown on light yellow-brown sharp rhombic crystals of Siderite to 0.6cm on edge. The translucent Siderite crystals have a high silky luster. Milky Quartz forms the matrix, upon which the Galena and Siderite have been deposited. A classic combination of minerals from Neudorf, which are rarely found in the market place now days, and this is a particularly attractive specimen.
