A really excellent specimen of Galena on Sphalerite from the Blackdene Mine. The miniature specimen display fine bright metallic cubo-octahedral Galena crystals to 1.2cm. The crystals form a very aesthetic horseshoe arrangement on a matrix of black resinous Sphalerite. The crystal are undamaged. The specimen is mounted on some black mineral gum, so that it display beautifully! The specimen was recovered in 1968. A real gem!
