Elongated and doubly terminated, this galena crystal exhibits a bright, silvery luster. From the thumbnail collection of Stretch Young, this is a rare elongated crystal and so the shape is eye-catching, but also the luster is incredible. It is perhaps the glassiest galena crystal I have seen and is from a great USA locale. A significant example for a thumbnail collection, where let us admit there are not all that many great galenas to go around, that stand out from the crowd. This one does!
