This is a sensational Eastern Euro combo specimen out of the Leithhauser Collection. What you have is an amazing quartz crystal with complex staggered growth and dozens of sub-terminations on its faces - and it is doubly terminated! Around the middle of the crystal is a belt of superb galena crystals to 2.8 cm across - razor-sharp and with a fine silky metallic luster. There is minor sphalerite as well.
