#05 / GALENA - Bulgaria
Locality: Madan ore field, Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria
Size: 7 x 6 x 5 cm
An excellent Bulgarian galena with large brilliant crystals, most with corner modifications and some with hoppered faces.
Associated minerals include Calcite, Sphalerite, Chalcopyrite and Quartz.
This one is early 1990's vintage when these first started to appear on the market.
From my personal collection, acquired in 1995 from GeoCommerce - Bulgaria.
