RM134   Galena with Sphalerite and Quartz

Rhodope Mts., Madan, Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria

A very curious group of cube-octaedral Galena crystals showing well defined edges and faces with some curved holes. Sphalerite crystals show the tetrahedron forms and honey transparences on sharp edges. Some of them are interpenetrated and covering the Galena. Really interesting specimen.

Size: 5,7 x 5,5 x 4,6 cm.
Main crystal: 1,8 x 1,5 cm.
