Dims: 6" x 4.25" x 2"
Pachapaqui Mine, Ancash, Peru
One of our largest specimens of Galena, this monstrosity has beautiful crystals up to 1 inch in diameter that show clean crystal form, frequent and interesting twinning formations, and in some spots, a beautiful irridescence caused by an oxide coating. Some of the crystals in this immense cluster are Sphalerites, with a darker, less metallic luster, and a different crystal form. A hive of small Quartz crystals grow around the cluster, and on its edges are a tiny smattering of Pyrites. This is a super-quality specimen that is just waiting for a collector.
