Galena With Sphalerite Coated By Chalcopyrite

ID: CC9004

Excellent cubo-octahedral crystals of Galena measuring to around 2cm, from the Salchendorf mining area in Germany. Crystals of Galena dominate the specimen with the characteristic metallic lead grey colour. Associated with the crystals of Galena on a thin white druse of Quartz are inter grown crystals of dark brown-black Sphalerite. The crystals of Sphalerite are largely coated by metallic yellow Chalcopyrite, all on a matrix of light yellow-brown Siderite.
