Galena and Quartz, 450/500 Level, Block 22, Kruchev dol Mine, Madan District, Southern Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria Medium cabinet 9 x 11 x 16.5 cm $1500.
The Kruchev dol Mine is producing some of the finest galenas ever seen from the district. It now appears that the great stopes where these were coming from are playing out. Spinel twins are probably the most common type found in this fantastic mine but superb cube and octahedral forms are found as well in combination with quartz and sphalerite. This is an exceptionally fine large cabinet group of galenas with great form and appearance. It has excellent three dimensional shape and just enough quartz to accentuate the galena. A dandy from mining in late 2007. In top condition.
