Description

The much discussed skeletal crystals from the new Bulgarian find!

A very exciting specimen. Base and backside have been cut so you can set it up both ways. The cuts don't show. Normally I don't like it but on this specimen I think it makes sense and even enhances the look. A real beauty!

This specimen is from the collection of a good friend who is a longtime lead-mineral-collector and chemist and studied the skeletal growth of these galena crystals on several specimen. 

 With chalcopyrite and tiny rock crystals.
