Galena With Smithsonite

ID: CC1546

A specimen of a well positioned, sharply terminated twinned cubo-octahedral Galena crystal 15mm across. The crystal has a matt tarnish and slight rubbing along some of the termination edges revealing the silvery metallic lustre underneath. Associated with some small (to 2mm) colourless and transparent doubly terminating Smithsonite crystals. A very good miniature example of twinned Galena from Tsumeb.
