Miniature, 4.0 x 2.6 x 2.6 cm
A STRIKING English CABINET piece of gray quartz pseudomorphing cubic fluorite crystals; and beautifully sprinkled with two steel-gray galena crystals and tiny, complex sphalerite crystals from Alston Moor. The back is covered with sphalerite crystals. CLASSIC, OLD-TIME English material of each species - but rare in such an unusual combo.
