A very showy, two-sided combination specimen from the Krushev Dol Mine of the famous Madan District of Bulgaria. A "forest" of lustrous, lightly frosted, translucent quartz crystals to 3.5 cm "supports" what appears to be a fallen over complex, lustrous, metallic-gray, spinel-twinned galena crystal. The composition of this two-sided piece is facinating and the couple of broken quartz crystals on the end are really not much of a detraction to this fine piece.
