Brilliant and flashy Galena crystals to 1cm. Of course it is much better looking in-hand as you can rock it back and forth and watch it flash. The crystal faces are mirror-like. Many of the crystals have a small corner showing an octahedral face and one set of crystals show a stacked set resembling a staircase. Get it in-hand and you will love it.
