A complete floater with no visible point of attachment, this superb galena specimen with crystals to 2.5 cm across is lustrous and display-worthy. The interstitial spaces are filled with ruby jack sphalerite bits. Mined from the Bahama ore body. Ex. Ross Lillie collection. RCL#1651. Unusual for the district!
