4.4 x 3.9 x 2.2 cm. One superb crystal of skeletal, battleship gray, galena, measuring 1.3 cm in length, is aesthetically perched on other galena crystals exhibiting various stages of etching. For added effect, scattered on the galena are several crystals of resinous, translucent yellow crystals of sphalerite to .6 cm across. The etching, and color contrast is super!
