RM1100   Galena with dolomite and chalcopyrite

Dörnberg Mine, Ramsbeck, Meschede, Sauerland, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany

This excellent specimen of galena comes from a classic ancient German lead-zinc mine. It shows a group of cubic crystals, interpenetrated, truncated by the octahedron and also by the trapezohedron. Good metallic color and luster, perfectly disposed on a matrix of dolomite crystals peppered by tiny chalcopyrite. It is a perfect miniature collected in the 60s, a German classic.

Found in 1965.
