RM645   Galena with dolomite and pyrite

Règia mine, Bellmunt del Priorat, Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain

A weakness, I admit. A cube-octahedral complex galena, defined edges, with polysynthetic growths on (111) faces. In one of them we can observe tiny crystals of pyrite and dolomite.
It comes from one of the classic mines of Catalonia: the Règia mine. In this mining area, occasionally, we could find small specimens but usually less defined. An opportunity to get a specimen from a classic Spanish locality.

Size: 4,2 x 4,0 x 1,8 cm.
Main crystal: 13 x 11 mm.
Found in ±1998.
