Description:A wonderful hefty cabinet display specimen featuring splendent, metallic, silvery colored, cuboctahedra of Galena with associated black Sphalerite at the base. The larest Galena measures 3.0 cm on edge. Great quality all the way around, and better in person than the photos indicate! There are some bruises to several crystals, so it's not completely damage free, but still a showy display specimen. These specimens might be plentiful on the market, but they are still some of the finest quality Galenas from any modern locality, along with a lot of the material from the Madan area. PLEASE NOTE: This piece weighs 1,360 grams (about 3.0 pounds), so there will be an added shipping charge required for this piece, please keep this in mind when bidding. Valued at $550.
