A group of galena crystals -- mostly cubes or flattened cubes -- associated with transparent quartz points and minor black sphalerite. Very typical for galena from this locality. Minor chips and cleaves, but nothing significant on the display face (especially at this price). Sits well for display on a naturally flat base.
