This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC8929
Well-developed silver-grey cuboctahedral Galena crystals to 1.1 cm form a thick intergrown crust over greenish-yellow granular Fluorite from the impressively named Churprinz Friedrich August Erbstolln Mine near Großschirma in the Freiberg District of Saxony, Germany.  The Galena crystals show a nearly complete spectrum of crystal forms between those of the cube and octahedron.  The crystals, which have a uniform sub-metallic lustre, form an aesthetic specimen against the predominantly yellow Fluorite base.
