Galena and Fluorite
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 6.0 x 4.5 cm
Denton Mine, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA

Aesthetically perched on crystallized purple fluorite is a magnificent, pristine, splendent twinned crystal of galena, 4.8 cm in length. It looks as if it twists up and away from its matrix plate. The form, the luster, along with the nice color all combine to make this galena specimen outstanding in beauty, and significance as well. It is complete all around.
