This is a solid, intergrown galena specimen that is simply stunning in person for its super-bright metallic luster and complex crystal forms. But to me, the key ingredient for this becoming a world class galena specimen, is that all the crystals (to 5cm) have a slightly melted appearance and the piece overall is UNIQUE amongst thousands of other galena specimens for this effect. For accent there is a druse of white quartz crystals on some of the galena crystals. This specimen was on loaned exhibit in the University of Arizona Museum for over a decade until my purchase of this collection in 2008. Comes with custom lucite base already made for the specimen.
