Galena with Quartz
This is a superb specimen of cubo-octahedral (cubic with octahedral corners) Galena from the Gidiursko Mine, Bulgaria. The Galena crystals from this mine are often sharp with a brilliant, metallic/mirror-like luster that is simply stunning. Add to that numerous radiating clusters of contrasting, transparent, colorless needle-Quartz and you have a one-of-a-kind, beautiful and aesthetic specimen! In excellent condition.
