Description

A fine cluster of distinctively deformed, tabular Galena set on less matrix of the same species. The terminations of the Galena crystals are clearly rounded and the surface features an interesting pattern as well. This is a mineralogically valuable specimen and an enrichment for every "oddity collection". The specimen was part of Armin Wendland, former editor of a German fashion magazine and unfortunately passed away several years ago.
