A seemingly weathered cluster of highly-intergrown Galenas rests on the brown limestone base of this piece. The Galena crystals are so heavily intergrown that it is difficult to isolate individual crystals. All have the classic gray coloration and slightly dull metallic luster. The limestone base contains a few crusts of tiny marcasite or pyrrhotite crystals and what appears to be crystalline and botryoidal siderite, though I cannot be sure.
