Item Description

Superb piece for this classic material! Two, splendent, metallic-gray, intergrown, galena cubes with striking, pronounced, stepped-growth faces from the less well-known Westfork Mine of the Viburnum Trend. The angled cubes are complete all-around and pristine and are jauntily perched on calcite with marcasite matrix. A superior galena specimen from this locale, with every view being different. Ex Vincent Valade and Robert Whitmore Collections. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
