Mirror lustrous galena and quartz

One perfect specimen presenting clear quartz crystals overgrowth by large, single galena crystal with very specifical desolvation „fingerprint“ developed on mirror lustrous crystal faces.

Galena, quartz, sphalerite-marmatite and chalcopyrite

One excellent, large cabinet size specimen, of quartz, overgrowth by large, very well-developed galena crystals segmented formation, followed by chalcopyrite and black sphalerite-marmatite. Galena is strongly dissolved in the last stages of crystallization, forming fingerprint signs.

Chalcopyrite, Galena, sphalwrite-marmatite, quartz and rhodochrosite

One unique specimen of galena, overgrowth by large bright chalcopyrite crystals with very aesthetic striation on the crystal faces and followed by quartz and black sphalerite – marmatite. In the end of the crystallization process crystalized several beautiful hallow rhodochrosite crystals, following the shape of dissolved calcite crystals.

Galena, sphalerite-marmatite, quartz, chalcopyrite and pyrite

One stunning large cabinet size specimen of black, lustrous sphalerite-marmatite large crystals developed on clear quartz, overgrowth by very well crystallized galena crystals – a combination of cub and octahedron, with mirror lustrous crystal faces. Galena is overgrowth by large chalcopyrite crystals, lately dissolved and replaced internally by small pyrite crystals.

Transparent green sphalerite- cleophane, galena quartz and pyrite

#1787
One amazing, large cabinet size specimen of cubic galena crystals, strongly dissolved and rounded, overgrowth, by small quartz clusters, pyrite and very aesthetic transparent isometric sphalerite – cleophane crystals with green color.
size 128 x 60 x 48 mm
Krushev dol mine, Madan, Rhodope mountains, Bulgaria.

Mirror galena, calcite, clear quartz and chamosite

One gorgeous, rare, and very aesthetic specimen of galena, developed on thin clear quartz crystals and crowned by white flat calcite crystals and by micro spherulites of dark green chamosite. What is very rare are mirror lustrous galena skeletal crystals, forming hallow cubic crystal shapes, with very thin flat crystals, which is very unusual for cubic minerals, and especially for galena.

Limonite quartz with sphalerite and galena

One very aesthetic cabinet size specimen of transparent quartz crystals, covering black sphalerite crystals and small galena crystals. In the last stages of crystallization small spherulites of chamosite are developed between quartz crystals and in the end, quartz was coated by limonite.

Galena, sphalerite- marmatite, quartz and dolomite

An outstanding and very aesthetic specimen of very lustrous galena crystals, followed by black sphalerite with extremely shiny crystal faces, overgrowth by quartz, and covered by white round dolomite crystals.
