This one is a natural beauty with good depth and eye appeal from all angles. The mineralogy is simple with frosted white Quartz on which cubo-octahedral Galena crystals have grown. They measure up to 9mm. Sprinkle around the specimen are tiny Chalcopyrite and pyrite crystals less than 1mm in size. It is a good pocket specmen.
