Galena with Calcite, Pyrite


This is a specimen consisting of numerous intersecting stair-stepped cubic Galena crystals over Pyrite with overgrowth of highly translucent Calcite crystals. This overgrowth is found primarily on the far left side of the piece and creates a terrific contrast with the metallic luster of the Galena. The Pyrite is only visible from the back. In excellent condition.
