Exceptionally bright, silvery metallic modified cubic galena in combination with zoned purple fluorite. The shale matrix indicates to me that it was collected from a narrow pocket near the top of the drift. I found similar specimens on several occasions. Upon close examination, 10X loupe, there are tiny edge chips on a couple crystals but overall the specimen is in excellent condition. Mined ca. early 1980s- probably 1982. Tolonen Collection. Note-3 photos have colorful reflections of my fingers on the galena...
