Galena and Quartz with Sphalerite, Borieva Mine, Madan District, Bulgaria, Mined 2013, Small Cabinet 45. x 5.5 x 7.0 cm, $300. Online 6/9. SOLD.
Beautiful group of chrome-silver modified galena cubes perched on quartz with associated black sphalerite. The specimen has an arm of quartz matrix that juts down so when the specimen is mounted vertically the galena is clustered like grapes on the end of a stalk. Excellent mosaic texture on the surface of some cube faces and a visually striking specimen in great condition. Mined 2013. Claude Begin Collection.
