A SUPERB miniature of lustrous, gemmy to opaque, dark blood-red galkhaite crystals to 3 mm RICHLY scattered on matrix from the famous Getchell Mine of Nevada from small finds in the late 1970s stashed until recent years by the mine geologist. Galkhaite is a ULTRA-RARE cesium, thallium, mercury sulfosalt and this is an OUTSTANDING example. SELDOM do you see galkhaite specimens with this many gemmy crystals!
