Here is an interesting one! The big, rounded crystal is a rounded galena crystal that seems to have a thin veneer of chalcocite coating it. At the back of the specimen, there are a number of of iron oxide-coated quartz crystals. Scattered everywhere are tabular, bevelled excellent crystals of orangey wulfenite. There are at least two other well-crystallized minerals on the piece that I do not recognize. Very nice!
