Galena on Siderite
Miniature, 5.7 x 4.2 x 3.7 cm
Neudorf, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
A superb miniature of display quality, with a sharp, 3-D crystal of galena measuring 2.7 cm nicely centered on siderite matrix. This is CLASSIC Neudorf material, always so prized and hard to come by on the market today. The crystal is perfect and complete, symmetric all around except for two small sections where some growth contact apparently took place and there are little micro-faces instead of the normal bevel on an edge. These things are ALWAYS expensive, sorry, sometimes in Europe worth more than gold. A symmetric and aesthetic piece like this is just a super rarity.
