This specimen is perhaps hundreds of years old - I have seen them like this only in old books like Sowerby - never on a piece available for sale! It features sharp galena cubes to 1cm on a matrix of massive galena. The galena crystals are all uniquely hoppered with a metallic luster! Very unusual piece from a classic German galena location. Not just a great location piece but a very neat galena. New York State Museum label included with piece. 7.0 x 4.5 x 3.4 cm
