Item Description

Splendent, sharp, intergrown, cuboctahedral, galena crystals are very aesthetically set on a starkly contrasting upright matrix of glassy quartz crystals on this outstanding combination specimen from China. The galenas are beautifully accented by very bright, brassy, pyrite microcrystals. This specimen is probably from the Rucheng MIne of Hunan Province. These are some of the very best galena crystals I have seen from any Chinese locality. Ex Brent Lockhart Collection and comes with a custom-made and labeled lucite base valued at $100 as a free bonus.
