Darren Adams' Photo Gallery

TLQ-0MPGalena : PbS

Mogul Mine, Silvermines District, Co. Tipperary, Ireland

Dimensions: 83 mm x 50 mm x 27 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 11.2 mm
Weight: 228 g

A fantastic Galena specimen, likely collected in the late 1970's from the Richard Barstow find. This was photographed outside in full sunshine and the bright silver lustred crystals of eye-catching intergrown cubo-octahedral Galena looked brilliant in the sunshine. Damage wise there is some minor chipping, but overall good. Becoming extremely difficult to find good specimens from Silvermines, as they all tend to be in collections or museums.
