A very interesting hoppered/skeletal, metallic-bright, 4.3 x 4.0 x 4.0 cm, complex galena cube jauntily set on matrix with quartz crystals and tiny pyritohedrons. There are some very unusual forms on this galena crystal from recent finds at the Krushev Dol Mine of Bugaria. Highly representative of the species and locale.
