  • $85.00
  • Level 450/500, Block 22
  • Kruchev Dol Mine, Madan
    Bulgaria
  • A plate of galena crystals from this modern day, classic locality. It is difficult to see but his is, in fact, one big spinel law twin and that is why the crystals appear to be in parallel. On one side, the crystals have that rounded appearance that we sometimes see from Madan. Just partially. The rest of the crystals are exceedingly sharp! Excellent luster. Very nice piece.

  • Stanstead

  • Quebec, Canada
  • A sweet, almost perfect pyrite crystal partially embedded (repaired) in dark grey metasediments. The crystal is a slightly elongated cube with just a tiny chip out of one corner, a miracle considering it was totally embedded in the rock, at one time! Nice light matte patina. Easy to look at!

  • Butte
    Montana, USA
  • A very nice specimen showing a plate of lead-grey-metallic tennantite crystals nestled amongst small, colourless quartz crystals. The tennantites are simple tetrahedra with truncated corners. A larger, quartz crystal on top adds a nice accent although has a bruised termination.
