An exceptional specimen of very aesthetic galena crystal, crystalized floating with quartz and pyrite crystals. Galena shows well-presented dissolution patterns on cubic faces, forming fingerprint waves and demonstrating how the crystal start its dissolution in the order opposite to it’s building.
Excellent specimen presenting water clear and well terminated quartz crystals, including small shiny crystals of pyrite and forming phantom inside crystals.
A large galena crystals on quartz with sphalerite. Galena is slightly dissolved and covered by small, lustrous cubic pyrite crystals.
A very interesting specimen build of quartz, followed by galena particularly corrupted and exchanged by chalcopyrite, which also is dissolved in some parts by recrystallizing pyrite
Extremely shiny and well-developed galena crystals overwrought by sphalerite and pyrite, followed by thin transparent quartz crystals
A very nice and aesthetic specimen of well terminated, light pink color manganocalcite crystals with rhombohedron after scalenohedron crystals, covered by small and very shiny pyrite crystals.
A very aesthetic specimen presenting very well terminated lustrous galena crystals, followed by quartz, pyrite, and sphalerite
A Large and extraordinary beautiful specimen of mirror shiny well-shaped galena crystals, lustrous sphalerite(marmatite) and pyrite.
Giudurska mine, Erma Reka, Zlatograd area, Rhodopes mountain, Bulgaria.
size 165 x 160 x 100 mm
An aesthetic specimen presenting pyrite and galena developed on mother rock, followed by very well shaped sphalerite(marmatite0 shiny crystals, covered by rhombohedral crystals of calcite
A very aesthetic and attractive specimen showing almost full paragenesis set – Chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite, pyrite, and quartz. The specimen is strongly oxidated – galena crystals lose their luster and chalcopyrite is oxidated with different stage and coated in some places by bornite.
