This interesting mineral association specimen features a 1.7 cm, complexly crystallized, somewhat skeletal galena crystal with a slightly melted appearance. In addition to several other, small galena crystals, we also find abundant lustrous to dull black sphalerite, abundant small but lustrous and glittery red-brown andradites, a few opaque to water-clear quartz points reaching 7 mm, and a single, sharp and translucent calcite scalenohedron with stepped growth features giving it a frosty surface. Some scatted damage is present, but the overall condition is good. Lots to look at here under hand lens or camera lens. Numerous display angles not needing a stand are available. Previous dealer label with a $30 price tag.
