Quartz on Galena
Cabinet, 12.7 x 8.0 x 6.8 cm
Nikolaevskly Mine, Dal
Weighing in at several pounds, this hefty galena has somehow survived the usual dinging and damages that heavy galenas from this part of the world tend to accumulate in the mining and travelling to be sold. It is a riveting, metallic sculpture that looks like it was manmade and could go in a museum of modern art showcasing the interaction of planes and symmetries. The white quartz druse is sparkly and snow-white bright in person, overall MUCH MORE intense than the pictures are able to convey. The galenas are brilliantly lustrous, highly 3-dimensional, and we see here at least two distinct crystal habits on one piece. It is complete all around and displays well in any orientation.
