  • Interestingly, this specimen has two styles of galena crystallization on it. One large, simple, galena crystal and a number of smaller crystals that are more octahedral dominant. The matrix is limestone, covered with light brown sphalerite crystals with the galena on top. The tiny pyrite crystals seem to have been the last mineral to crystallize. Displays very well.
