Sweetwater Mine, Ellington, Viburnum Trend District, Missouri, USA
A beautiful classic of Sweetwater, Missouri galena has interpenetrant cubes with great form. Repetitive twinning causes a convex shape to the centers of the crystal where they have many small crystal faces aggregated together. These details catch the light and give a nice sculptural form. (It also causes the piece to appear blue or even purple in photography - that color is present in some lighting conditions, but really they are gray) In good condition with some minor bruising to the edges, this is great piece-- and very heavy for its size
