A very nice, shiny galena with calcite from Peru. The galena consists of many large galena crystals up to 2cm in size, and the surface has some nice etching which gives it a wormwood appearance yet it retains it's excellent luster. The calcite crystals are differing sizes and are all well terminated with many double terminations.
