I noticed that the term " Galène tricotée " have been added. It's a good thing because these are typical for the Moresnet region in Belgium. But galène tricotée means knitted galena and not knitted blende.
Buttgenbach well descibed this as galena crystals growing in 3 dimensions, a little bit like a pine tree and are included in Schalenblende. It's the galena who is included in the blende and not the other way around.

I hope this helps.

Take care and best regards.

Thanks, my mistake (fixed now) - I had entered Strickblende just before, so I obviously chose blende instead of galena.
