While there are no perfect cubes of galena, I really like this specimen. The galena may actually be dominated by a single crystal with an incredibly complex shape. From some angles all of the thousands of crystal facets have the same orientation, suggesting that they are parts of the same crystal. It is highly irregular, although composed of cubic sections. There is also several clusters of prismatic quartz crystals which have a frosted surface giving them a slightly milky appearance.
