Galena (spinel twinned) with quartz
Krushev Dol Mine, Madan, Rhodope Mts.
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
9.5 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $275


The mines of Madan have produce some wonderful and unique Galenas, this is one. The flattened spinel twins have been "melted" by later hydrothermal fluids and show several complex forms much like a jumble of flattened discoidal plates. The crystals reach 3 CM. This piece has a bright mirror like luster and is in perfect condition (except chips on one part of the outer edge where it was collected, and that is not easily seen) all the display face is undamaged and showey. I have enjoyed searching out some of the special Galenas from Madan this is a fine and different example.
