This adorable thumbnail-sized cluster of galena crystals, to 1.3 cm in length, exhibits amazing luster and a partial wreath of tiny quartz crystals as an accent to the sharp galena crystals. The galena crystals also display their spinel twinned form, very obviously. From the thumbnail collection of Stretch Young.
