Galena, Siderite
Miniature, 4.3 x 3.5 x 2.6 cm
Neudorf, Harzgerode, Harz Mts, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
An excellent specimen from this old and famous German locality. A sharp and lustrous, 7 mm, cuboctahedral galena crystal is aesthetically set amidst lustrous siderite rhombs, more galena crystals and a couple of gemmy, ruby-jack sphalerite crystals. Easily over 100 years old, as this classic locale closed in 1903. Ex. Mullane Collection.
