Brilliant metallic luster which is impossible to really appreciate in any photograph, from the great Madan mining region. Very sharp, perfect crystals with no damage contrast with the sparkling white matrix. The crystals here have several habits and are mostly modified cubo-octahedral. This particular mine yeilded some of the best Galena specimens found over the past sebveral years and the luster as in this piece can be incredible. An excellent value for the esthetics and quality.
Impossibly bright and lustrous, these modified cubes make a very eyecatching specimen. The fantastic Bulgarian Galenas are already noted as some of the best ever found. There are many forms and associations, but the most impressive are those with an intense metallic luster that is almost impossible to photograph. Damage free, this is a great value.
