Item Description

An OLD-TIME, HIGHLY UNUSUALLY shaped galena specimen from the historic mines at Niederfischbach, Siegerland, Germany. This very showy, old piece consists of a striking, complete all-around floret of sparkly, bubbly, botryoidal, grape-like galena. Smaller galena botryoids cover the thin crust of gossan matrix, that the galena is attached to. For the locality and species, this is a super piece and comes with an old label in German.
