GALENA CLUSTER SMALL

You don’t have to sacrifice quality for size as this Galena Cluster Small specimen shows. What a cool little piece, an interesting cluster with some skeletal and some twinned crystals. It will only take up a small amount of space in the collection, though I suspect front of shelf too. Galena is one of those really collectible metals that comes from a range of locations and in different shapes. I love the Bulgarian variety and you could have a whole collection of different ones from that location alone.

Location:
Madan ore fields, Bulgaria.

Dimensions:
3.9cm x 3.5cm x 2.8cm, 65g.

Galena: PbS

Galena is the primary ore mineral of lead. Worked for its lead content as early as 3000 BC, it is found in ore veins with sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, tennantite-tetrahedrite, etc. and in skarns, as well as in sedimentary rocks where it may replace carbonate beds or be deposited in pore spaces.

Madan ore fields:
Large Pb-Zn(-Ag) mining district.  Famous for excellent specimens of galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and others.  Known since ancient times, exploited in the Middle Ages and extensively mined during the last 50 years
