21464: Galena
Madan Ore Field, Rhodope Mountains, Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
Miniature - 5.9 x 4.1 x 2.3 cm (2.3 x 1.6 x 0.9 inches)
Weight - 140 grams (0.31 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

Your basic cubic galena specimen, with interesting stepped and pitted growth features. The surface luster and color are even across the entire specimen, suggesting that this is a floater (more likely) or a cleavage surface became indistinguishable from a natural face (less likely). Several display angles not needing a stand are possible. No damage.
