Calcite, Galena
Small Cabinet, 8.8 x 7.5 x 3.6 cm
St Andreasberg, St Andreasberg District, Harz Mts, Lower Saxony, Germany
A very fine and rich, two-sided calcite on galena specimen from the historic St. Andreasberg District of Germany. Glassy, colorless calcite crystals richly cover both sides of the sculptural, massive galena matrix. The calcite crystals have the classic shape and form of St. Andreasberg calcites. Old material dating to the 1800s and comes with an old handwritten label. Highly representative of the species and renowned locale.
